COMPLETED PROJECT

finished results......
my first attempt at machine quilting with a simple feathered border. as i look at the picture i see things i would do differently like spacing.....

the body of the quilt is two inch squares of tone on tone creams and taupes.....

simple feathered corners......


all in all i'm proud of this quilt. it is the first one that i've done that hasn't been completely stippled. i was deteremined to do something different on the borders. i do have a lot to learn yet, but am feeling much more confident and willing to try more things. my one problem is marking the quilt.....i'm looking for something that will brush off easy....i don't want to always have to wash the quilt after it is complete, and i don't want the finished product to have markings all over it.

Love your quilt! I'm determined to free motion quilt but right now I'm really rotten at it. I'm going to keep at it because that is what everyone says is the key. I hope they're right!
