I liked the straight lines I did on the wide sashing on
Marion’s quilt and decided to do it again on Janet’s. The area between the lines was wider so I did
a more freeform feather that matched the feathers I did in the setting
triangles and border.
The back really shows the quilting and the outlining of the embroidery.
Exquisitely appliquéd, this stunning quilt was made by
Wendy, and the design is by Esther Aliu called Hearts Desire.
Wendy’s quilt was a pleasure to quilt. I quilted a background fill of small curls to
make the appliqué pop. I also quilted feathers around some of the border, and
around the centre block. Some of the
larger pieces of appliqué were outlined to anchor it.
