Community Quilt 108

2 10 2013

I quilted this quilt during our annual quilt retreat weekend. I could have followed the geometric blocks, but instead decided to soften them with feathers — everyone likes feathers, right? 😉

I left the first and third borders unstitched, did some straight line ruler work (with my Line Tamer ruler) in the half square triangles in the second border, and then some half feathers and spirals in the black border.

I really liked how the variegated thread blended beautifully with this quilt top — thanks for letting me use it, Bobbie!
