Have you not heard???

Keeping up with things so far......

I cleaned the lint out of my bobbin area, as
 suggested in the quiltalong....it needed it!
......I got my back pieced,
and I got my quilt basted. 
After my fiasco with the polkadot quilt, I have trust issues, when it comes to basting.  More is never enough !
So I ran out of pins just pinning the quilt, and now I am supposed to baste a practice piece, too.  I may just thread-baste it.

Remember, if you follow me during this quiltalong, do as SHE says, not as I DO ! 
I'm a terrible student.

Also, I rewashed the Feathered Star/procrastination quilt, and am satisfied with it.  I'm it's mama, and know it's history, and I can live with it's imperfections.  What I WOULD like to point out though is the PERFECTION of the quilting design in the four corners of the quilt's center.   My best gal-pal, Wanda, designed these feathers to perfectly fit this area, way back in probably 1988 or 89.  They're just a perfect complement to the quilt, don't you think.

Thanks, Wanda Gayle !
EDIT:  I also got my practice piece basted, AND a small wall-hanging top that's been hanging around for atleast 15 years if not 20.


  1. always feels good to get something you need to do done. i love that feeling! :o)

  2. Thanks for the honor and pleasure of designing the feathers for that quilt years ago. It was so fun... and nothing compared to the beautiful workmanship and loving stitches you sewed to make this masterpiece quilt!
