Sneak Peek....


I am currently working on this quilt. Love it so far - I was debating on whether or not to fill in the outside feathers - but husband, mom, brother and sister said to leave it alone - what do you think?

Also - last day for our Halloween Charm pack deal - you can see the details here.

4 weeks and counting - I am way behind and this baby can't come early - but I am really ready to meet this little guy. Have a great week everyone! I can't believe it's already November!

i'd KILL to be able to do feathers that well! don't fill 'em. they're beautifully balanced just like they are.

Elaine said...

I would leave those feathers alone. THey let the middle ones stand out more. I always love your work.

You are amazing... I can't believe that you are even asking anyone for an opinion! But I would like to bet that you do add some leaves to the outside border... but only $5. I'm not a big better!

You are just fishing for compliments! Its just Beautiful work. i say keep it simple.. less is more is my motto.

Kerri said...

Looks great the way it is. Now I need to be able to do that

Kathy said...

I'm sure your family said to leave them alone because your 8 months pregnant and they want you to rest!!
I bet you fill in those feathers since it is bothering you but it will look great no matter what you decide!

Your quilting looks like the back of a wedding dress, with the tiny little pearl buttons and the feathers like the gently gathered fabric with the designer touch. Vera Wang may see this as a sketch of one of her dresses. Very lovely.

Leave it alone! The contrast makes the center feathers really stand out - and they are gorgeous!!!

Roberta said...

Oh my...it's perfect just the way it is...don't touch it...don't think about touching it and don't think about thinking about touching it ;) My Jerry Lee Lewis came out...lol

Needled Mom said...

That is gorgeous, Judi. I agree with your husband and your mom. It is stunning.

Hang in there. These last weeks are always tough.

You are amazing! I wish I had your energy! Love the feathers!

Shari said...

Less is more... very nice texture...

Gene Black said...

If it were mine, I would still say "leave it like it is"

Mary Grace McNamara said...

It's gorgeous just the way it is, but it will be gorgeous no matter what you do with it!

I just have one question though...4 weeks until your due date and how in the world can you still reach far enough to work your long arm machine? ! Unless you're short enough for your belly to tuck in just under that bar! I'd love to see a picture!

Sherry said...

Its beautiful as it is. You do the best work I have ever seen. And it sweet to see ta you are always worrired about your quilting but you really are hard on you self. If I could be 1/4 as good as you are I would be tickled pink. Hope you can o what you need to before the little one comes. I also hope you can get some rest before because we know you won't get any after.

Melanie said...

What a beauty! I would leave it as-is!

Em said...

holy camole you are amazing!!!! Leave them like they are is my vote!!!

Karen said...

I always say go with your gut feeling but in your case that might be the baby talking :) Seriously, it is beautiful work - you are an amazing longarm artist!!

Blessings to you on the rest of your pregnancy. I will keep you in my prayers.

Peace,
Karen

Love it the way it is!!!

I'm absolutely amazed you are still able to get to the longarm with your belly. :-) I say leave the feathers the way they are....too much may hinder binding anyway. :-) Best of luck to you!
