Friday is for Finishes

With one large-ish quilt on the frame right now, I am gearing up for the 2 very large customs coming up next. I think I will get one loaded next week while all the crazies are home on school vacation, but most of the week will be devoted to allowing my left wrist to heal before I embark on an excess of rulerwork. I got a couple finishes this week - enough to satisfactorily prove that my machine is functioning just pefectly. I wondered after having many issues on the thicker miniature quilt. I am overjoyed not to have an equipment problem. Learnings are tucked into my hat for another day.

This is a small wall-hanging that the owner only wanted an edge-to-edge on. It is stitched with a plum Glide thread. The colors are perfect for me, and the ombre fabric is very interesting.
It's another gorgeously warm day in the not-so-frigid northeast today. Who'd have thought that the average February temperture would hover near 30F! It is usual to have a week of sub-zero, but not this year. I think we have had under 24" of total snowfall, all winter. My hyacinths are already poking through!!

Have a good weekend~

I like this edge to edge feathery design! Is it a panto or did you freehand it?

I absolutely love your quilting on this quilt. I would love to be able to do this.
