This is one of my quilts. It is called confetti log cabin, a pattern from Quiltmaker. I am going to quilt feathers in the light rows. Not sure what in the dark, yet. Still thinking on that.
Here is the border, so far. It is an navy modelly fabric with gold thread. This is what I have so far. Will do something in the arches????
Next is a picture of a dowel I put in the hem of my main leaders, before the zippers. This will help keep the leaders straight, instead of getting smileys from stretching uneven. I hope this works. They came from Lowe's, in the wiring department. Used for fishing wires in walls. Really a cool idea. They were to long and DH cut off to fit. Comes in 3ft sections that screw together. The screw ends are already there for you.
