Feathers/What I am working on today

I am working on a small wall quilt 32" square for the past couple weeks. This is helping me to stay focused and not cry so much about Maddie. I miss my shadow so very much!!!

My grandson asked that I not cry today!! He was at the house when I got the message from the Vet, so today I am staying busy and focused!!! No more crying, at least in front of Cooper.

So this quilt is for a friend. We bartered, I got a really cool purse for my mother and I am trading a small quilt for it!!

I will show just a bit, but will post the whole process when I get finished!!!

I've only used Aurifil thread for the quilting. 40wt and a 50wt.
So far, so good, no problems with the thread and it looks

There will be butterflys in all four corners and lots of stippling. I love the colors, so spring or summer feeling :^)

Well, More at a later date. I am hoping to work hard this weekend and get this quilt finished, When I do, I will be sharing the results with all of you!!!

Take Care, Happy Quilting, and keep those scissors sharp!!! Martha
