I do appreciate Gibsons.  though their prices have gone up also.  Still less than LQS, but not as great a deal as it used to be.

Nice.  I like the contrast in those stars.

That's going to be beautiful.  You are so good.  I took handwork with me to Cabo and didn't touch it.disappointed

In the interest of finishing up an OLD ufo, I started quilting this mantle quilt last night.  Boy, the magnetic channel locks sure made it a breeze.  Now to decide on the quilting over the bargello.  I know Ami suggested feather but just not sure I'm up to feathers.  I think I may do ivy leaves instead in a gray monopoly so they won't show much.

  

Nope Ami is the one that suggested the arcs. Suze was the one that suggested feathers. Have to say the arcs you did look perfect!!!

I thought the arcs were a very good suggestion and the execution of them looked fantastic.

I think my next goal is to get comfortable with feathers!  I just need to practice, I know.

Anyway, the ivy leaves look great.

I'm also quilting the small applique wall hanging on the same backing to the side.  I had just enough black batting left over from the Christmas quilt to do the two small pieces, just barely.

The ivy looks beautiful and is a great choice for that quilt.

I love lining up more than one project on the frame as it is a great time saver and good for using up large batting scraps as well.

I am seeing myself a lined cordroy bomber jacket and if I like the fit I am going to load up some fabric and quilt it and cut it into a quilted bomber jacket. So far I have only quilted fabric to cut up into bags.

Thanks Ami.  I've gotten to really enjoy the ivy, it's busy enough you don't notice any irregularities. 

I keep seeing stuff where people have used quilting samples to make things, I need to do that again.  I made a Christmas tree bag when I first go my Amara.

I think I may give this a try.  It's made using an oversized sweatshirt.  doesn't it look snuggly!
