After I stitched one row (and wasn’t sure) I asked my husband’s opinion. He said it was OK so I did another row and hated it. So as I was picking out the two rows (each 8” x 77”, by the way) it occurred to me that when I ask someone else’s opinion, I have already made up my mind-no matter what they say. When I told my daughter this revelation, she said, “Yeah Mom. We know.”
Anyway, I quilted a feather pattern in the striped rows, although it is not very obvious. And that is good because I was nervous about doing the feathers. They are far from perfect but I got lots of practice. I decided if I waited until I could do them perfectly, I would never do them.
So, it is done, I love my quilt, and I am happy!
