As promised…

As promised, here is Linda’s BOM that she made at a local

Quilt Shop, Country Concessions.

As you can see from the photo, there was alot of fussy cutting and

piecing but Linda handled it all beautifully. Everything was flat and

square. No ripples or extra fabric in the borders at all.

The flower panels are really pretty. I didn’t want to detract from them so

I merely quilted around them. I had to do some type of stitching or these

areas would “puff” up.

In the smaller sections, I used a green polyester thread and followed the

print on the fabric. I think it looks like a wobbly cross hatch.

Originally I had promised to use feathers in the quilting so I had

to make sure I followed through. I quilted feathers on the 4 corners,

around the fan blocks.

In the green borders, I again followed the print of the fabric. I think

that the wobbly cross hatching looks great!

The white backing shows off the quilting. I used a white

polyester thread for certain areas on the top as well as for

the backing too. If I had to choose again, I would use a light

green because there was alot of green on the top.

This shows some of the stitching in the outer brown border. I went

with feathers again because I thought it was appropriate. You really

can’t see the feathers that much on the quilt top because the

outer border is a dark brown. If you want the quilting to be seen,

remember to use a solid color and not a print.

This shows some of that wobbly cross hatching. I love it!

This little fabric postcard was made after I had completed

an art quilt by Susan. She made an amazing art quilt of white

birch trees.  I loved her  art quilt so much that I felt compelled

to make a smaller version of it.

See you next week.
