Feathers in the snow

  The power stayed on and I got a lot....a whole lot.... of work done on the border of the Buzz Saw quilt.  Now that I am approaching the third side, I sort of have this quilting design figured out.
   I wanted the feathers to curl over in a more circular effect along the sides.  I figured out that having them go in opposing directions created a very neat effect.  At the corners, I used a straighter spray of plumes rather than a curling one.
 

  The snow has stopped for now, and I was wanting a photo of this one on that fluffy white stuff.  So a quarter of the quilt will have to do.  There's about an inch of sleet and ice under that top couple of inches of snow.  That kept me from trying to lay it out completely smooth.

 


  I also finished off a couple of  snack mats for a little variety to my day.
Happy stitching.

  5. I say you did a whole lot of work done on the border & it is beautiful! The snow makes for a pretty background. Those little snack mats are so sweet. I've made & received several of those & they are fun to make & receive.

  7. Funny enough Ive often wondered just how wet quilts get when folks lay them out for a photo shoot!
    I mean do they dry easy enough to not damage the beauties!!
    UK snow is rarely the soft fluffy kind I recall from Calgary or Gander, that some how didnt seem wet to the touch so often!
    It really is a beautiful quilt : )

  8. Oh my goodness, it's beautiful! I love the way the feathers are made, beautiful. I guess with ice under the snow you didn't make any snow angels, too bad :)
