I posted about the bird quilt here and I've been working on it quite a bit. I just finished quilting all 50 blocks. First I stitched along the ditch of all the sashings to stabilize it. The friend I'm doing this for provided me with polyester batting. Below are 3 of the blocks showing how I quilted them. I stitched around the birds and flowers and filled in the rest in a variety of ways.
My original plan was to quilt cross hatching in each block, but then I figured that it would be very difficult to turn the quilt in order to change direction. It works great on a smaller project, but with a large bed quilt, I didn't think I could do it. My plan is to to quilt feathers in the setting triangles. I started that this morning and it's going pretty well - and quite fast!
Last week I finally finished the window treatment for my sewing room - a yo yo valance! I didn't want a full curtain because it might block out some of the sunlight that the north window provides.
