Hello All,

I haven't done much on the baby quilt or wall-hanging.  Progress on the baby quilt includes hiding all the thread ends and trimming in preparation for binding.  I'm going to bind it with a mix of the stripes and the Amy Butler dot fabric.  I actually had to go out to buy an ironing board before I cut the binding.

For the wall-hanging I've done more bead work and found some black with white polka dot material for the binding.  My original thought was to use a black and white gingham check but I didn't find any at the store so I chose this instead.

I'm excited to say I'm taking a class with Linda Hall called Fantastic Feathers.  It's at Sanford Sewing Machine.  In preparation I tried a few feathers of my own since I've never done them before.

Sorry it's so hard to see the feathers.  

I just signed up for a free on-line class called Art-Ful Card Making Techniques with Jane LaFazio and Joanne Sharpe.  It's sponsored by Strathmore.   I follow Jane's blog

I'm linking up with Leah Day's Free Motion Quilting Project.  I'm heading over there to see what everybody's done this week.

Hope everybody's having fun doing something creative.
