This fun yellow flower quilt is not only bright, but it is huge. And it was made be a 93 year old quilter.
Here it is folded in quarters and hanging before quilting.
I knew right away what I wanted to do with these huge 18" flowers.
Some pebbling, and echo lines make all the difference. I think it brought the flowers to life.
In the background I wanted to do a similar but different motif. I tested it out like this by making a sample with my domestic machine to see how I would like it. I liked it, but it still needed more to fill the empty space between the flowers. Feathers, I love feathers, and it did just what I wanted it to do.
This just brought it all together.
The wide borders were filled all the way around with big bold feathers.
It was such a pleasure and an honor to work on this quilt. Thanks for joining me on my journey, I appreciate it.
