Ohio Stars on Point

Ohio Stars on Point

Mary's Ohio StarsMary’s Ohio Star quilt is big!  I love how the light/dark blocks are randomly set throughout the quilt.

Border detailMary wanted to round the corners, therefore I quilted meandering feathers throughout and off the borders allowing them to be cut off and not affect the design.

block detail I changed the thread color for the light and dark blocks, stitching a continuous curve design in each one.

back quilting detailOf course, it’s always fun to look at the back!

Thanks!  Linda 🙂

Rangeley Stars quiltThis is a big one!  I met Ann last January at Rainbows and Calico Things retreat.  She was taking the class to make this awesome quilt called Rangeley Stars.  Yes, January 2013 and she finished in April!!  I’ve made progress on my retreat projects but not finished!  Kudos to Ann for finishing.

We decided to finish with an freehand overall edge to edge quilting called Meandering Feathers using a dark neutral thread.Rangeley Stars by Ann

The fabric colors are much truer with natural sunlight!

Meandering Feathers detail backThe backing fabric is natural muslin, which looks great with this quilting design.  The thread is darker so the quilting stands out.

Thanks!  🙂 Linda

Meandering Feathers Rock!

Meandering Feathers Rock!


Marilyn’s quilt was perfect for freehand feather meandering.  She wanted something more than a basic meandering but not as much as custom.  It’s hard to see in this picture but we selected a soft green thread to accent the yellow fabric.

The detail shows how the feathers wander around the quilt, I love it!

I’ve been crazy busy lately, quilting quilts and having family fun!

Tomorrow, I’ll be going to a 3 day retreat  to sew all day and maybe all night!  Rainbows and Calico Things Quilt shop has a new retreat room and we’re excited to be the first group to initiate it!  I’ll be working on my UGLY fabric challenge so look for pictures to follow.  If you want to follow my retreat adventures, head over to my Facebook page, I’ll be posting pictures of our adventures!

Have a great weekend, I know I will!!!

Design Wall Monday and Meandering Feathers

Design Wall Monday and Meandering Feathers

In my effort to find fabric for cutting charms, I found some nearly finished blocks for a “bulls-eye” quilt or wall hanging.  I finished sewing the stacked concentric circles and cut them into 4 segments.

I was playing around with arrangements but I’m back to my original plan of making them into “bulls-eyes” because I will probably need to trim the finished 4-patch to a standard size.  I love the raw edges, too!

The PSQ blocks hang out on my design wall for inspiration!

Here’s a recent quilt that I finished for Emily.  The quilting design is Meandering Feathers.

Emily wanted a freehand E2E and this looks great with the big blocks and borders, adding lots of movement and texture.

I ordered a specific color of Superior OMNI thread for this quilt and used it in the needle and the bobbin with very good results.  The only difference I noticed is the need to wind more bobbins because the thread is heavier than So Fine 50, my usual bobbin thread.

Thanks for looking!  Linda
