I'm learning how to do spineless feathering from Elaine Huffman's book, "Crisscross Dancing Feathers". I think I've found a wonderful feather-niche with these! After some practicing I could manuver the corners. Yeah! In the past curving around corners has been a challenge. Also, no marking and no spine with these feathers!
This is a friends quilt I'm doing. She initially wanted small swirls in each four inch block. That was pretty tight quilting, and getting each four inch swirl evenly spaced as I curved around was not much fun either. So, I convinced her to let me use the larger swirls instead. I like how it looks so far.
Sassy had her second series of puppy shots on Wednesday. She now weighs 4.1 ounces. I think the point 1 must be her long fur! The vet seemed to think she would weigh between 10 and 12 lbs. when she's fully grown. She is learning to "sit". Potty training is still hit and miss! She has adjusted to wearing her collar, but now hates her leash!
