Since starting school I really haven't made much but over the holidays I managed to kick out this quilt for a friend who raises chickens. Smiley It's her rooster. It's pretty simple--there's a little painting but most of the work was the machine embroidery. It's quilted in rayon in a freeform version of the traditional feather stitch.

I really like the way it turned out so I'm sharing. A close up:

That is so great! Do you have a special machine for the machine embroidery?

No just my sewing machine with the feed dogs dropped and a jumping foot. I also have a quilting table for the machine and one of those slider sheets which helps reduce friction. I find that special embroidery machines aren't really necessary for the kind of work I do, you just have to know some tricks. Smiley

Thanks again everyone.
