You know I am a big fan of Sue Spargo Designs.
Sue is a wildly successful, internationally known quilt artist.
This Birds of a Feather quilt is the 2013 BOM.
I will probably be doing several of these in the upcoming year.
When I do duplicates of the same quilt top...
I stitch the backings together
(since they are the same size and I use the same colored threads)
and load them onto my longarm machine.
Once the background quilting is done on both tops
I can roll them back and forth and do the finishing details.
Here is an example of the same bird from each of the different makers.
I bet you are wondering if I ever
get them mixed up and don't know which belongs to who???
As soon as they come into my house I pin a name tag on each part.
I keep a name tag pinned on each quilt the whole time it is here.
Yes, that would be a nightmare getting them mixed up!
The one on the left is Midge's and the right is Andrea's.
Or is it the other way around? LOL
I hope you are being creative today!
