Do I look taller?

 Finishing this project stretched my abilities.  I feel like I grew as a fmqer.

I went into the quilting process not really liking  this top any longer.  The colors are much more subtle that anything I have worked on in a while, so I figured what the heck, I'm going to practice feathers.
 The ones on the left look more like hearts than feathers but I still kinda like them.

Then I figured might as well go for it.  Yeah, not so good but with practice....... maybe.  (Don't remember them looking quite so shaky and misshapen in person.)
I like the back so I might use it as the top.
The binding has to be hand sewn still but the sun was out so I thought I should take advantage of it.  This one is 95 x 104, yikes!

Hope Thanksgiving was great for everyone.  It is my favorite time of year because it is the opening of fudge season!
