Something very special is being shipped to my new great nephew, Zeke! I’ll reveal the quilt pictures later!
When I saw this quilt I knew exactly what to quilt. We opted for echoed feathers in the border and curling c’s in the narrow borders. The body of the quilt is what I call back and forth feathers, creating a secondary pattern around the 1/2 log cabin fabrics. I like to match the top thread and bobbin thread and in this case that’s where you can see the quilting detail best because of the contrasting thread. It becomes a reversible quilt because Marty pieced a really fun backing.
Linda’s made another fun quilt with fun modern colors and patterns. The Star Flower Pantograph by Sue Schmieden of The Quilting Connection is perfect for this quilt. The batting is Quilter’s Dream Poly select and the thread is Lava by Superior Threads. Check out the pieced back, good way to use up your fabric!
Do you have an unfinished quilt you’ve put off quilting or have an unfinished gift or auction purchase? Pat’s Lone Star quilt has been waiting to quilted for awhile and I was very excited she brought it to me! Now she can finish the binding and have a great wallhanging. The batting is Quilter’s Dream Blend and the thread is Superior Threads So Fine #50. I have a small selection of extra wide backing fabric which we used for this quilt.
