It’s quilted!! Happy Dancing everywhere! I was going to post this earlier, but I wanted to wait for the right light to get some nice photos. This is the largest quilt I’ve quilted so far. It’s a large queen. I am very pleased with the outcome. Maybe because there are feathers everywhere!! My client wanted them before I even suggested them. Honest.
I think the freehand meandering feather is one of my all time favorite allover patterns.
A swirl with a little feather tail in the red border.
I really love the back of this quilt!! It’s my favorite because of all the texture. It actually made me catch my breath when I first saw the back.
I was a little nervous with a solid muslin back because it would show all my little mistakes, but wow, does it show off the quilting!! This could almost be a reversible quilt!
The batting is Hobbs wool, which I love too. I did suggest it to my client. She wanted a nice batting as this will be a bed quilt. Melissa, my client did a beautiful job on the piecing.
I have a confession, I thought I wasn’t doing a good job while I was quilting this. I don’t know what was wrong with me?? Just doubting myself. The funny thing is I hardly picked any stitches out of this. That’s a first! Now, I stand back in amazement. When I see this quilt, off the frame and all quilted, it reinspires me. It reminds me to take this journey one day at a time and to enjoy it.
I’d like to wish all the dads out there a
