Another Project Done!

I finished Kaye's quilt. It finished at 12 1/2 " square. It is machine quilted with silk thread and Wool Batting. It doesn't look too bad, I look at all of these as a learning experience. The thing I would change about this, is I would stipple from the feathers and cable on the border to the edge of the stars. There is too much puffy space between them. Or, I should have made the border quilting design bigger to take up the space.
I have to start working on my self-portrait for the Quilting Arts Magazine Challenge. I have some of it done, but, I want to do other things with it.

This is what I have finished.. actually, since I have taken this picture, I have beaded the glasses, and I have added ears, a nose, and a mouth. I guess I should have taken a new pic before mentioning it at all. Anyway, I am calling it "Flight of Ideas", to represent the ideas for projects that are constantly flowing into my head. Stay tuned!

I have the next 3 days off. I need to make that teddy bear quilt for my Aunt Betty. I have put it off long enough. I want to finish my pineapple mini before my guild meeting. And I have to finish this self portrait before my guild meeting. So I'd better quit blogging, and get to work. Have a good weekend!!
