A Quilt with a Difference

I have been quilting for Judy for a few years now. I have learnt to expect the unexpected from her and this quilt was no different.


Judy wanted the circle part of the blocks to stand out, so we decided I would ditch stitch and continuous curve them with a small feather in the centre.

Even though it was a completely different style of quilt, Judy liked what I had done on a earlier quilt by Margaret (to see Margaret's quilt click here), and we decided that I would feather the remainder of the quilt with the feathers curling out from circular wreaths on the four feature fabric blocks.


Judy chose an electric blue thread, and because she gave me a white back, the quilting is really striking.


Pop over to Esther's Blog to see what other quilters are doing this Wednesday.
