Tallships Quilt -Finished!

Hello Everyone

I've had a busy week on the quilting front with way too many projects lined up.
Around wednesday I finished my Tallships quilt.

                                                  Middle border on.



I decided on some simple pinwheels for the next border.


Let the machine quilting commence!

I was very pleased with how my feathers turned out in the sashing bearing in mind that I am still a novice at free motion quilting.

I worked a bigger swirly pattern over the pinwheel section.

Simple but striking.

Finally bound with the same fabric as the inner border.  Always feels good to get another finsih under your belt.
Today I am working on 3 mug rugs and over the weekend I hope to get back to the Dresden quilt.
I've just realised that I have a huge to-do list for Christmas and I am going to be doing Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt which starts on 18th November.  Going to be a busy time which means I will be busy in blogland too!

Wow, another finish! You are on a roll! Your Tall Ships is striking, Rhianon! Fabulous feathers too. From what I've seen, I'm not sure you're still a novice at FMQ, m'dear. You have excellent control and smooth curves. Beautiful! Thanks for linking up to TGIFF!

I want to learn how to sew with a machine, do you need a special machine to sew quilts?
