Barn Quilts

I have a sweet friend that lives in  northern Mississippi.  She is an amazing quilter and she also makes barn quilts.  They featured her on the local news there this week.   Here is the video!
I just had to share this with the blog world!

Practice practice practice.   still working on getting better with my feathers.
I still have to cheat and draw them on first but slowly working on making them with out having to see them.

Made this wall hanging for a friend.

Reusable duster

I ran out of dusters so I decided to make my own.
I started with 4 pieces of fleece (4 1/2 inches by 7 inches)
I think the pictures tell what I did














I also  made a yellow one!

Table Runner

I have never made a table runner.  I see them on all the blogs and have been wanting to make one.   A couple of weeks ago a friend came over to sew with me and she had these aqua colored scraps.  Just enough to do two Dresden plate panels. I thought it would make a nice table runner.
I had to go to Hancock to pick up 3 extra matching fat quarters.
I put it together and decided it would be a good project to practice doing feathers.
This is what I ended up with.

This is how the back looks...

Quilting feathers!

I did a lot of quilting practice on this wall hanging.  I am determined to get better at quilting feathers!

It is about 33 inches square.  I plan to bind it in the dark blue.
