Mini Giveaway # 20 - Another Practice Fabric


edited: 1:45pm (CST)  So Sorry Guys!!!  When I scheduled this post I didn't proofread and had it scheduled for Nov. 3, not the 1st.....   So, I added a few days to the time frame (see below).....

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Hello, after a long time of not posting.....more on that later....

Now, this practice fabric actually has simpler designs, less busy than the last one....although there does seem to be a lot of  the same theme running through it.....feathers, petals, etc....

I sewed a little on it, without sandwiching, to see how it would look with red thread on the designs...but decided again it was not for me...

It is on white fabric, regardless of what the pictures show (click on them for a better view)....and about 35 inches, or a very scant yard of fabric....

So,,,here are the pictures.....please disregard the folds....did not want to iron it or heat it up because of the design....didn't want to chance either setting the ink or making it disappear......not sure which, if either, would happen....






Good Luck to all and remember that the winner will be announced after DH does his thing on Nov 7 after 10:00am due to a trip we have planned this coming weekend starting early Friday morning. ..... See how one goofup can multiply into a whole mess?......We might stay over and come home on Monday, the 7th....if so, it will be middle to late afternoon before ya'll know what's what around here. 

BUT,  all good things comes to one who waits.......and wins.    Too, remember please to be available for contact so you will know you won.....

 I am trying to get a couple of sandwiches ready for binding so I can take them on the trip with me.  Also, I have been trying to work on my handquilting a lot since posting last, and have not had much to "show and tell" with pictures. and other things have been either given priority or getting in the way....That is no excuse, but wanted my followers to know that everything is hunky dory and hopefully soon I will be getting back in the groove.

I've tried feathers before but only on tiny practice pieces. Would love to try on something bigger. I want to do a feather border on one of my quilts but I definitely need more practice!

I haven't seen anything like this before either. Very interesting. I think it would be fun to do a bit of hand quilting with it.

Connie said...

I haven't seen anything like this either and would love to win it! I think it would make a beautiful piece in the center of a quilt and also be a great way to practice those feather stitches. I just started following you, thanks!
