Playing with FMQ

Yesterday I got some more of this done.

Its my own designed feather Piece.
I havent been able to sit for long to do this... so it was great to actually get some done.
A lot of it is more micro-quilting, which I love. 
I did get a bit muddled in a couple of places, but I think thats OK.  I still have a long way to go, and it takes quite a while to do.
I am using a batting I have never used before and I think its a bit soft
Time will tell I guess.

It is pouring with rain outside and the wind is about gale force...
We have had one front after another roll by us here
and the wind has been dreadful.  It always seems to happen at night. and that seems worse.

Well I am off to get some things done now. 

Maybe I will get some more of this done later - if I am lucky :)

Wow Joan, talk about micro quilting. We have had beautiful weather the last couple of days - but we usually get your weather three days later, just in time for the weekend :)

Truly beautiful Joan. Our summer has been so miserable hot and muggy we are actually talking that we would prefer 20 below temps. I think we are ready for fall LOL.

Joan, this is amazing work! I've bookmarked it in my quilting inspirations folder. One day I'll be able to sit down and play that way! In the meantime - WOW, do I love watching your work!
