New York Beauty



This striking quilt was made by Lou.  


I had a lot of fun quilting it, and enjoyed designing something special for the border.  I knew Lou liked feathers, so I wanted to design something contemporary that incorporated feathers and echoed the sharp points in the piecing.




The centre I mainly ditch stitched or quarter inched the piecing as I didn’t want to take away from Lou’s beautiful, and very precise work. 




I have linked to Esther’s Blog for her WIP on Wednesdays.

  3. Sooo pretty. I really love the effect of the triangles in the outer area against the bold circles of the quilt - it has such an Australian feeling to me. Which is perfect!
