I've been quilting

I've been busy with classes but I have done some machine quilting on the Drunkard's Path...I'm still working on the white areas and then I want to go back and add something in the yellow-I'm thinking of a diamond grid-the parallel lines are just too "straight" but I'm not sure yet. Its a lot of fun doing the free triple circle "flowers" in the white but they do take a lot of time and a lot of thread-I can't believe all the bobbins I've made!I've also been hand quilting on the Double Wedding Ring...I think I'm about half way now. I took this pix at night but I think you can see that I've quilted in my name-using a 30s style printing. (The color is a little yellow but with the flash it was totally washed out.)
Isn't this just a gorgeous feedsack? The friend that gave me this one, the next one and others that I used in the DWR is here visiting and will be joining us for Thanksgiving dinner! We'll be about 14 this year-American friends from all over Israel-its really a lot of fun and a lot of good food.

Such beautiful quilting - you're so good at both machine and hand-quilting! Enjoy your Thanksgiving!

Your DWR is lovely Miri such nice hand work, you are brave to tackle it!
The Drunkard's Path is turning out beautifully, these are both time consuming projects.
Happy Thanksgiving!

Both quilts are so pretty. You are doing some awesome hand quilting! And the feedsack fabrics are some of my favorites - so bright and cheerful.

The stitching on both of these quilts is lovely.

I like the idea of selecting a menu suitable to a book. The Wizard meal was a lot of fun. I will have to do some research and plan another. I liked your ideas; they have inspired me.
