Yes, yes yes!!

It's all very well buying fabric but what if all you want to do is stitch? Today my day has come. Some time ago I bought some stretched canvases with the intention of making little quilts to stretch over them. They are 6" square so today I made this little version of a Patsy Thompson feather. A minor problem, the canvases are way under my table and that might as well be on the moon at the moment. My knee does not permit crawling under tables.

Never mind, I still have to wash out the guideline marks. Yet again the Heide Stoll Weber fabrics absolutely refuse to photograph their colours well.

This one is larger and I made it simply because I could reach this size of canvas. It's got to be washed too but it's photographed folded over the canvas to give you an idea of what it will look like.

This is the back before the extra stitching was added. I've included this photo because the very bright teal is closer to the real colour.


  1. I also find the intense colors almost impossible to photograph well. Are those fabrics sateen? Your feathers are fabulous.

  2. Sally, your feathers are wonderful!! I have been following your blog for quite some time now and I just love your work. We are both members of CyberQuilters, that is how I found your blog.

    Oh, and I love your new fabric purchases. I can't wait to see what you do with it.

  3. Sally,
    What thread did you use on the red fabric?
    I love the way it "glows" in the centre!
