Easy as 1, 2, 3

It's easy as 1,2,3....hah! not really! By the time I actually sew it's that easy! The most time - consuming part about custom quilting (getting fancy wid' the freeform) is rehearsal. It takes forever to come up with a solid plan on how to git' er' done! However, once the plan is in place everything usually runs fairly smooth. Above I'm marking the vein (discussed in the prev. entry) with my handy dandy chalk wheel and makeshift template. Blue tape makes a great marking line.
Here's the final result of much planning...lovely mini feathers. They looked great in the big cream triangles in the border. It definitely needed something exciting. They really made the border.
