This quilt is now on my favorites list. Mary did such a nice job piecing, and pressing (so appreciated by a longarmer) this BOM. This quilt had it all, assorted blocks, big wide border, negative space, and lots of room for creative quilting. I used one layer of Quilter's Dream Wool batting, and Glide thread on the top.
In the border I stitched a big feather all the way around. The feather spine got its shape because of the crosshatched blocks that also went all around the quilt.
Each block has different stitching
I stitched a replica of some of the quilt blocks in the negative space. I was very influenced by the work of
Judi the Green Fairy, when I was working on these blocks.
Crosshatching and feathers go so well together.
And lastly, the center stars.
And another look at the whole quilt. You cannot see all the quilting and texture in this photo, but it definitely shows the beautiful layout of Mary's quilt. Thank you Mary, I loved working on your quilt.
Thanks for reading, I appreciate your company.
