So I made that time for myself this evening quilting up a future project for this blog and then making a gift for a dear friend who really helped me emotionally this morning. I am definitely in her debt and what better way to say thank you than a quilt! Or in this case....a clutch...I think that's what you'd call it. It still needs a closure of some kind. I'm going to see what she'd prefer.
I always try to do something new when I'm quilting. Often it's unexpected and just happens. It's not planned. Today I decided to put the ends of two feathers together in a twirl. I like the results. I also used lots of different feather patterns and varied their length. I'm quite happy with the results. Here are a few more detail pictures.
You can see I had a fold-over problem in the corner. I hate it when that happens, but since I was planning on trimming it anyways I didn't bother to rip.
Above is the final pouch! I am feeling much calmer.
