Quilting Sketch Book....Plume Background Fill



At first glance this looks like feathers...

It is plume shapes used as a background fill:




This is how I stitch it out...

You can fill a lot of space quickly with this design.




Here it is stitched into a baby quilt:


No marking required for this plume design...






Just remember to keep changing directions.




Life in the Hay Field:


Brad continues to make big bales...






The red baler on the back of the tractor makes

6 foot round bales that weight 700 pounds




After a day in the hay field we head for home:


It feels good to pull down the driveway...






Some of the yearling cattle are shading up 

under the cherry tree in the front yard...






The Yellow Thread Shed sits idle...

...no quilting for me.

The red hen house has a new paint job.






The flower beds out front are filling in nicely...






Gunnr finds a place to rest after a long day 

in the hay field...



















We sit on the front step and watch the sunset
