FMQ Challenge Day 7

Thursday's work.

Still the double wadding piece... cotton and wool.
Silk thread on top and Aurofil in the bolbbin tension 1.75 on Nessie - my Bernina 820.

Then I played with some different threads and colours.

Feathers  - small square on far left is a rayon thread I think - I had the tension at 1.75 but I dont like this one!
Small square next to it was silk and very pale greenish colour...tension 1.75 this time these pieces are with a wool only wadding.
The feathers were both aurifil top and bottom, tension at 2.0 I really love this thread.

Back to the cushion today ....  all very quiet here :)

I love, love, love the feather on the right. Reminds me of an old fashioned feather quill pen.

Way cool Joan! I love the applecore quilting pattern - I've never thought of doing something like that. Your feathers are, as usual! - spectacular!
