midnight in montana ~ counting it all joy

hello from 'feather land' once again!!

you may be tired of seeing my feather quilting, but i had several multi-faceted goals while home on vacation.  first, look at all i have!  secondly, use it!  and thirdly, improve my feather quilting. added bonus:  count it all joy!   

i've learned a few little tidbits, too, in my 'quilt week' at home ~  i took notes {still am!}.   i will post about that experience, stitching hints, tools i use, what not to do. but heck... let's face it ~ it's the bad habits {and experience} that we tend to learn from the most, hmmm? sounds like life, doesn't it?  as well as my bad habits which i've had to train myself out of!  yikes!

so ~ onto this little runner. you may be struck by the color choice...  more muted for me!  yes... i'm branching out ~ lol!!  but it still has a warm, rich color that glows, which i find very appealing. this fabric is another piece purchased from chris daly last fall .

once again, i am quilting with superior threads, 40 wt tri-lobal rainbow polyesters, a topstitch needle 90/14 and masterpiece 50 wt, extra-long staple, egyptian 100% cotton in the bobbin.  





it reminds me of a forest at dusk, a campground in late evening, or perhaps just a mid-summer's evening, and quiet time on the patio. 

thanks everyone, for reading along on my feather journeys!

Your feathers are so pretty. Send all the hints you can. This is one technique I cannot seem to "catch".

I enjoy looking at every feather you post so please keep them coming as and when you have time.
I get your posts as e-mails so pardon me if I ask something you already have covered in the comment section but why do you use a combination of polyester and cotton? I have never tried that - kept to using either or when FMQ so am interested in your experience regarding this. TIA
