Yesterday, I tried a new freehand feather on one of my own quilts and didn't like how it was turning out ... so rip rip rip. After I took it off the frame and started to tear it out, I glanced at it from a distance and realized it looked pretty good. It think it would have helped to walk away, take a break, and look at it from a distance. Next time.
I try not to be too critical of my work but when you are only a few inches from the stitches it sooo easy to see all imperfections.
I quilted this table runner recently for a gift. No ripping out here.
I have been piecing a lot lately. And not unsewing.

I hadn't worked on the Civil War Block of the Week for months. I decided to get back to it and make at least the ones I like until I have enough for a quilt.
Idea from Don't Call Me Betsy
Now I think I will load the flying geese table topper and try the new feather pattern again. I can't wait to get comfortable with it so I can offer it to customers.
