This quilt was already completed — the binding was on and some very basic ‘stitch in the ditch’ had been done around the large blocks. But the Community Quilt organiser thought I could add some ‘magic’ to it and lift it from mediocrity to something a bit more special.
I decided to quilt loopy feathers in each block — using soft green thread in the green blocks and a soft pink variegated thread in the pink and green blocks. All the large swathes (the big ‘X’) of feathers meet in the centre.
