I know that you may be tiring of looking at this quilt but I wanted to give
you one last glimpse of what it looked like before being quilted.
Here is what it looks like quilted up. I am always amazed at the
transformation a quilt undergoes when it is quilted. The stitching
changes the look of it so much and brings it to life. It reminds me
of cross stitching before all the outlining is completed.
The back looks just as good as the front.
Because there are so many blocks in this quilt (32 if I remember
correctly), I will show half this week and the other 16 next week.
I hope that you enjoy the eye candy.
This is one of my favorite blocks but then again, there are alot of
favorite blocks on this quilt.
As you can see, there are lots of feathers in the blocks too.
Trying to add some interest in the cream area but stitching some straight framing
I used 4 different colored threads on this quilt. Red, black, cream and
a peachy pink color.
Another favorite block.
This one is stitched in the same manner as Judi Madsen does.
Alot of straight lines and squiggles in this block.
As you saw earlier in this post, I used the same color
thread in top and in the bobbin as well. It alleviates alot of
Another favorite block.
Can you see the feathers in the red sashing area?
More sashing areas and feathers.
More feathers. Can you tell that I love feathers?
This is a really neat block too.
I like how this star turned out. I think that there are
swirls in the star itself.
The tulip even has feathers in it as well.
I really like the frame around the outside of this block.
Have a good week. Now, I am off to try and finish the Lily of
Rosenberry. Only 2 more borders to applique and only 180 more berries to
add to the borders. Yeah! Now, I am wondering what quilt to make next.
This stage is both exciting and perplexing for me.
Linking up to Freshly Pieced.
