Community Quilt 59

3 02 2013

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.

Your loopy feathers are so nice….fill the areas in a gentle way and allow the quilt to remain soft. Very “romantic” feel… definitely added the “next level”. Your quilting is gorgeous!!! You know I’m your biggest “fan”….Hugs, Doreen
