Yesterday, first thing, I had to bind my Slap-la-que Heart quilt. Here's a pic of my feather progress and where I inserted them into the wide border. Below the feathers are some ribbon candy motifs.

Before the kids came out, I had loaded this quilt onto DW and Alisha and I were playing with how to quilt those circles. We came up with a variety of ideas but nothing really suited me (yet). I put three gentle waves in the piano key border and some string of bees in the white border. The center of the circles have an open spiral in them with the string of bees at the connectors. I may run a feather fan in the black section?!?

I'm pretty nervous about this work I'm doing. I'm aware of how precise Mary is and everything I do I ask myself, 'Is this my best work', 'Can I do better?', 'Will Mary approve?'. I was actually sweating while working her pieces yesterday and I think my heart rate was pretty elevated too. I need to get a grip and just enjoy the process.
