Quilting done

All quilted and binding done. What a beautiful sunny day perfect for picture taking, I enlisted the help of my dear hubby today. Without further ado here it is. I made the lap size. This is going to be my new snuggle quilt.



A closer view of the quilting. I need to practice straight lines. They did look straighter before I washed it. You've heard the story of the washing machine eating the socks... well I think the washing machine made the quilting lines crooked. Right? 



Feathers aren't perfect but I do believe they are getting better. They are all freehand, and that in itself is a biggie for me. Just need more practice. I didn't quilt the purple crosses I left them blank.


A shot of the back the texture shows up nice. 



Lining up to Linky Tuesday at Freemotion by the River.

I think the quilted lines are supposed to be crooked. Better that way. Lovely quilt and colors.

Your quilt is beautiful, with a lovely traditional classic look. I love the feathers radiating from the centre of the block. Don't fret about veering off from where you thought you should go when quilting. Straight straight lines look too machine made. Your quilt has soul.

Thank you for linking up with Free Motion Mavericks.

Love, Muv

The colors and the quilting in your Irish Chain make it a real standout. You did beautiful work Cindy and I especially love your feathers.
