New quilts

My civil war Austin block quilt is finally on the bed with it's matching pillow cases. Bout time!!
Now I have an ebay double wedding ring on that I'm quilting for my sis. It has some issues but I have learned one thing. Instead of making pleats where the fabric is waving, I am taking the seam apart and moving it folded edge to where it lays flat then edge stitching it on the long arm. Much neater.
I have to give a big thank you to Suzanne Earley for all the great advise on feathering. It is so much nicer doing it her way.

I hope everyone has a great week.
