String Quilt.....Under the Needle

No Hay Fields today...

The RAIN ran us out of the hay fields...

Instead of tractor work...

I spent the day in the Thread Shed.

Once it dries out,

we will be back to the business of making hay.

I am machine quilting this quilt

I spent 10 hours on my Sweet Sixteen...

it is just as much FUN as operating a tractor!

First I mark a spine for the feather work...

I do have a fondness for the 

SewLine air erase pen.

The spine is marked...

now it is pedal to the metal.

I do love me some feathers!

The feathers filled 

the negative space nicely.

I quilted swirls in the pieced string section...

the dense swirl quilting 

helped push down that area

so the feathers pop up.

I am so close to being done...

maybe 2 or 3 more hours to finish.

We are sorting yearling cattle tomorrow,

so the quilt and the hay will have to wait.

I will post more images when this is finished.
