Machine Quilting and More

Today I spent most of the day machine quilting the peacock quilt. As you can see, I'm trying to convey peacock feathers with the log cabin blocks.

I was wondering what to do with the darting fish border when I thought to use the magic of the Internet to find out whether the Dear Stella confetti was still available (far right). And yes, I found some and ordered it. Of course, I had to order some other fabric to serve as padding so the confetti fabric wouldn't get bruised during shipping.

When I laid out the fabric for the photograph, Molly thought it would look a lot better if she was laying on it.


  1. Good call, Molly. All photos benefit from the strategic addition of a cat.

  2. Your logic for ordering multiple fabrics cracked me up. I might have to borrow that line in the future.

  3. that's probably the best excuse for buying more fabric so far! it IS fragile, right?

  4. I like your clever quilting! And Molly is correct, of course, about the fabric. Too much cuteness!
