The quilt top came together really quickly - it's a nice, big star. I used a ruler I received in my QuiltCon swag bag to make the flying geese that form the quilt's points - I like when rulers take the complicated math out of things!
I had planned to keep the quilting pretty simple but that just didn't seem to be what this quilt wanted. I started with the centre feathered wreath (my first!) and went from there.
Plume feathers, more feathers and a fleur de lis in the corners:
I like some of the FMQ better than other parts but overall, I'm really pleased with this finish - I hope my customer is too!
Happily counting this toward my Q3 Finish-Along goal! Yay!
This is amazing! I love it! Old fashion fabric and all. Such a sweet baby quilt and amazing FMQ. A wreath feather. I need your skills!ReplyDelete

I love how the quilting gives it movement. Especially in the flying geese blocks. :)ReplyDelete
Very pretty, Felicity. I especially love your quilting!ReplyDelete
haha! Know you know my predicament with trying to keep the quilting simple - those darn tops just keep on saying they want more! Fabulous job on a really sweet baby quiltReplyDelete
What beautiful quilting on this one!ReplyDelete
This is so gorgeous! I love how the quilting makes the triangles "bend" inward and softens the whole look.... love love love!ReplyDelete
It's got a lovely soft feel this quilt. Isn't it great when a quilt knows how it wants to be quilted? So much easier that way. :)ReplyDelete
This is absolutely beautiful, do you make quilts for sale? I'd be interested in something very similar to this.ReplyDelete
