I found a fall ufo to machine quilt for a quick finish. I hadn't finished anything in ages - it feels good :0)
I hadn't done any machine quilting in months so that part didn't go as well as I would have liked...
I think it will be better after I wash it. I'm planning to display it here on the kitchen table so I imagine it won't be long before it needs a wash.
I always enjoy feathering borders. I was having a hard time finding a deep rich black to bind it with until I found this black and brown stripe. I love striped binding :0)
While I was at the LQS I picked out some fabric to make owls for my Bird of Paradise border. I really don't have these colors in my stash at all. Anyway, I got home and went to wash them and they had been left on the cutting table of the quilt shop on the other side of the city. There was other fabric purchased (stash enhancement) and that was what I brought home. A quick call to the store and the owner promised to send them in the mail. Canada Post can be dreadfully slow so I wasn't expecting to see them until next week but only 2 days later they arrived. I will be appliqueing owls this weekend :0)
