hi everyone!  good morning!

i’m lovin’ myself a little faux leather and stitchin’ feathers! and i’m diving through my stash of projects that have been patiently waiting for me.  this first one is for Chris Daly; who also writes a blog TheArtQuiltBlog.blogspot.com {or click link above}, who requested this special order on leather piece, unbound.  she plans to use it for an ipad cover, or hand bag! 

 i outlined the feathers with a lime green metallic ‘razzle dazzle’ and variegated polyester thread, is all from superiorthreads.com… and they are beautiful, for sure.  i typically favor a 50 weight 100% cotton in the bottom when using the variegated threads for quilting.  i also lower my tension at least one full number, too.

enJOY!  stay cool!

  2. Leslie the thread colors are so vibrant. The colors glow. I love the green accent and the variegated thread was a genius choice. I'm honored to have your quilted work. I will be anxiously checking my mailbox everyday. Thank you a thousand times!

  3. I love how you venture through projects like this that I would run and hide from! Looks fantastic as always!!!

  4. This looks like it should be part of a fancy pair of cowgirl boots? I would love a pair like that. xox
