I'm so happy with myself! I sat down at the machine and I actually finished my toile quilt! I really haven't touch it in over a week, except to pull out bad stitches.
I was finally inspired to do something. You see, I had finished the border with feathers and an echo and I just didn't like the way one part of the quilt looked. So I took it out and then I didn't know what to do. There is sat, for days. I would feel guilty about not finishing it, but I wasn't sure what to do with it. Then I started making those granny panties and I think my mind answered the question all by it's self.
I sat down in the morning and I just started quilting and I didn't get up till I had finished all of if. Hurray! Now I don't feel guilty about anything, except eating a hand full of mini cupcakes!
PugsLee is helping hold down the quilt while I take pictures. She thinks it's going to take off with a slight breeze. Ain't she cute? She is also listening real hard to what I'm saying, "Get off the quilt sweetie. Ok, move your rump. Moved it pumpkin head!"
Nope she didn't seem to understand. Just cocked her head from side to side. Silly dog!
See that triangle space at the top of the picture? That was where I had my problems. Too fat feathers and bad stitches. Now the feathers look related and thin.
This is the back side of my quilt. It shows the quilting better and I want some surprise at the Quilt Show. So I'm sorry you will have to wait till then to see the front.

Have a wonderful weekend and I hope you get done as much as you want!
Take care, Brandie

Oh wow, that's just beautiful and that's the cutest puggle ever!
I don't think I'd ever have the patience to do that elaborate of quilting. I think I'll stick with the Qbot for anything beyond a meander.
