I am home alone for the weekend. It's a virtually unheard of event, and I am going to take full opportunity to have fun. Husband and child left this morning for some father-daughter special time, so I scurried around this morning doing chores so I was free to play.
And here's my first play project. I dyed this in my Carol Soderlund workshop in late May.
And I decided that it's the perfect opportunity to play with machine quilting. I mean, if it turns out badly, I won't be devastated. And all that splashy color will hide less than perfect stitching.
I decided to play with freeform feathers.
They're not perfect, but they sure add a fun texture.
Here's where I am now, with the pinky-red parts stitched.
I'm going to fill the yellow parts in with something different...don't know what yet.
