Air Born Geese

I did it. I actual sat down and did it. I wasn't feeling it but I made myself sit down and do 30 minutes of sewing. Now all the geese are done and I even started on the little triangles next to the geese, that'll be tomorrows pic.
I had a really hard time taking a picture of the quilting. Almost harder that doing the actual quilting! I tried every light, went outside and tried every angle. This is as good as it gets.
I started the little triangles and I did some more ripping out. I finally made up my mind and have a couple done, so that's todays goal. I can't guarantee there will be a better picture, because the aqua thread blends even better than the red does. But the quilting is making everything lay flat, it's job, so I'm happy with it.

Did you notice (those with eagle eyes) that these feathers aren't as fat? I put them on a diet. They are going carb free from now on. A skinny feather is a better feather, and you can get more in a small space, which just looks better.

A little quilting every day make Brandie a good girl! Practice, practice, practice, soon I'll have amazing super model feathers... NOT! But it won't hurt to practice.

Take care, Brandie

Hey those look really great in there. But, honestly, in the bigger areas, I love your fat feathers!
