If you can recall, I gave a couple of glances of Swoon done in reproduction fabric by Primitive Gatherings. It was here, if you don’t recall because it was so long ago. Remember, I am playing catch up with posting quilts. 🙂 Swoon is a quilt pattern by Camille Roskelley. Primitive Gatherings did it their way. AND I LOVE every square inch of it!! As always, I will let the photos do the talking.
Lisa Bongean requested that I quilt “your freehand feather panto.” LOL!!! That’s what she likes to call it!! I love all that feathery goodness. I think the romantic nature of the quilting only enhances the quilt. Feathers make the world a better place!! 🙂
If you have been following my blog, you know that I like to post a large assortment of photos. Especially ones that feature the quilting…close-ups of the quilting…my quilting. Makes sense don’t you think since I am longarm quilter?? Plus, as you all know I love to see tons of pics of quilting and by the feedback I get from all of you…you do as well, so that is what I feature. 🙂 I am making a point here, but it is a topic of another day.
Yep, loved every square inch!! It looks so rich and beautiful in reproductions!! I wanted to keep it!!!
You know I took photos of the back too.
Threads are all So Fine by Superior. Batting is Dream Blend. The quilting is all freehand. I was questioned several times about this in Houston while the quilt was hanging in the Primitive Gatherings Booth. It was hanging on the side where Nick Bongean runs the register. Poor Nick kept having to call me over to the quilt to field questions regarding the quilting. Mostly, I was asked what design I used and if it was computerized. Wow!!! Its so funny to me because as I was quilting it, I would have to fight the urge to not pick out if I didn’t like a feather or two!!! It EVEN fooled the great Liz Porter!!!! She asked what design I used too!!!! FYI, I loved meeting Liz Porter. She was super cool!!! I think she is someone that would be a lot of fun to hang with!
If you love this quilt too, I believe kits are still available here.
I have not shown you the goodies I picked up while in Houston. I will be honest, I did not spend a lot of money at the show. I can hear you all booing. I will show you where I did spend my money though. 🙂
Oh YES…when in Texas you get yourself some real cowboy boots!!!! We went shopping at the most amazing cowboy store. It was awesome. On the way there, I said I wasn’t going to buy anything because I knew it would be a pretty penny. Baaahhhhaaaaa!!!!! All it took was one foot in the door and I yelled “I am SOOO buying a pair of boots!!” LOL!!! Here’s the fun part…I am going to have a little giveaway!
Guess which boots are mine AND which ones are Lisa Bongean’s!!! 🙂 You have to guess both!! I realize two people have the same boots but one has bare legs and the other has cheetah legs. You need to specify cheetah, brown, bare and black boots. All the people that make the correct guess will go in a drawing for a prize!!!! You have until Sunday night. I will announce the winner Monday! Good luck!!!!
Now, I have to tend to a little fiasco on my hands. Ugghh, I wrote this post to take my mind off of it. I found out yesterday there seems to be another me out there in the world. Some criminal has attempted to steal my identity and clean out my checking account!!! What a nightmare. All will be fine, it is just a giant pain in the you know where.
