And sometimes you have to take time to play...

I have zippers on my leaders for the backing fabric...  love my zippers.  There are all kinds of ways to attach your backing to your leaders and new gadgets coming out all the time.  What I like about my zippers is if I'm working on a customer quilt and get the notion to play...  I can just zip one off and zip my play sandwich on!

That's what I've done...  I'm working on a large customer quilt with lots of custom quilting when I got a new idea in my head that I had to try right away.  So I zipped her off and zipped my on...

That border is just a little over 2"....  and this next one is even smaller!

I love doing little tiny feathers...  and when using metallic thread you have to lay a lot down cause it's so pretty!

Looks like I could of centered that arc a little better...

Now back to my customer quilt!

Don't forget to leave a comment on this post to enter my giveaway.....
