FMQ Challenge Day 12 Tuesday

Day 12

I started this piece tonight ... May continue with it tomorrow - or start another one.

I started to echo round the edge...and wondered what to do the fill with...
Not sure!
maybe I will stick with the same varigated thread to see what it looks like - I can always make another cushion .... I guess. 
 I did draw the feathers roughly to give me a guide where to quilt, and changed them as I was sewing.  Curved the centres into the stem more than I had drawn.  It seems to be easier to sew than draw at times.
This is black homespun  cotton on a Kona beige cotton backing , it has a cotton wadding, and I am using Aurifil thread top and bobbin.  The tension is set on 2.0

Kim S said...

That looks fabulous! I would do the background with a dark solid thread so the feathers really POP... JMHO
