Whole Cloth Quilt once again.

I seen to have been a bit lost for a bit, but we have been busy with friends and family.

Today I have peen playing on my practice piece...and you will see where I have been using my photoshop on this photo.

Some spelling wrong here - and didnt have time to work our which layer I was on :(

I have  - on my REAL piece - finished sewing large circles on the actual border, and am FMQ feathers on the final spine...and nearly made the decision to sew 1/4 inch 'piano keys' on the final border..as you can wee in the photo above

These lines were freehand

The 1/4 line are sewn using my Carol Olson ( of Fine Line Rulers)
to help me with the lines.  I did mark the lines first

Its the begining of the April School Holidays here, and Easter too of course...so I may be a bit quiet again for a bit.
Andrea will be away for a few days in the second week with her Father and his family - so I will have a few days to myself... BUT I am also starting my Tablet Design Calss with Carla Barrett on Step on pins...and as I am slow to pick up these things...and its a 3 week online course... I may not get too much sewing in... but I can plod on with my WCQ now I ... almost... know what I will do to finishe it.

Then of course I need to catch up on the Free Motion Quilt Challenge too  with SewCalGal. 

A vey happy and blessed Easter to you all...dont eat too much Chocolate.

Please forgive me if I dont always answer all your comments...Please know that I so appriciate

Beautiful quilting! Even your practice pieces just shine. You could turn them into pillows. Your patience is really paying off with amazing skills. :)

Oh Joan, this is just so lovely. I did not FM at all during class & I'm so new to the longarm that I fear I'm back to square one now that I'm back to practicing. I look at lovely quilting like this & dream of doing work like this.
