It's always important to take photos before and after your diet, right? Well, you sure aren't getting a photo of me in spandex biker shorts and a sports bra, but I will give you my "before" pic of my feather quilting.
One of the thing I love about long arm quilting is that your improvement rate is exponential. In fact, I can tell which end of practically any quilt I started quilting because the other end looks so much better. Anyway, this was my first try quilting feathers, and I wanted to document the occasion. They look way better than I had anticipated. By the time I finish this 4 yard piece of practice fabric, I'm thinking I'll be ready to use real fabric.
Oh, and regarding the photo-- please ignore the gimp feather on the right. You know the one. I ran out of thread there and apparently I messed up my mojo. Oh, and ignore my chalk lines. But hey, pretend this was on a busy piece of fabric. It would look 1000 times better, I'm sure!
