A few blogposts ago I wrote about oiling my black Featherweight, The Duchess, and starting a new Feathergirls project together with fellow Feathergirl Hubertine.
The plan is the same as our first Feathergirls project: a traditional quilt, antique style, not difficult so it will not take up too much time (so many other projects fighting for our attention) and – at least the top – has to be made on our Featherweight machines.
So – like last time – we each planned what we wanted to do and recently we got together at Hubertine’s for ‘the big reveal’, this is what I plan to make, Ohio Stars!
I love this simple block and this is a good opportunity to make a quilt with Ohio Stars. My blocks will be 6” x 6” finished.
I have no idea how these blocks eventually will become a quilt top but I am sure that will come to me as I progress.
Hubertine’s plan for her second Feathergirls quilt is here, on her blog.
My first Feathergirls project is not finished yet, I am still hand quilting my Jacob’s Ladder and had a great opportunity to do a lot of that last Wednesday during mine (and Hubertine’s) first visit to Karen’s Quilt Café at her beautiful B&B.
It was a gorgeous spring morning with bright blue skies. This was the view of the Hertogshoeve B&B, driving into Rijpwetering.
We were met by Karen with coffee and homemade cakes and had a lovely time with all the ladies there….. and the chickens who walked around the building.
Karen made lunch of leek soup and a smoked chicken breast sandwich, yum!
I managed to get a lot of quilting done, without the usual interruptions you get at home.
Slowly but steadily the quilting is progressing, hopefully I will get some time this week to do more!
