More Feathered Rose

I am showing two quilts in this post – the same design, but different fabrics and quilting.

This is my design, called Feathered Rose.  Both quilts shown were made by my students, taught at my local patchwork shop.

The first quilt was made by Margaret, and she had me custom quilt her quilt with swags and straight lines in the border, and lots of feathers.  This is the second time Margaret has made this design.  The first one was a present, but this one is for her.

The second quilt was made by Jeanette, and was quilted with a freehand allover rose design.

You can see other versions of this design, including mine, here.

I have linked to Esther’s Blog for her WOW = WIPs On Wednesdays.


  1. Lovely, really like the one with the custom quilting, it really makes the quilt come to life.

  2. Interesting to see how the 'same quilt' looks with 2 different quilting designs.
    Both beautiful - as usual!

  3. Both very different, but both equally beautiful. A great way to see the difference between custom and an allover design. Lovely work Desley.

  4. These are both so the first one with your custom work. It's always stunning.

  5. Both are lovely. How is your house coming along?

  6. Love seeing the difference between the two quilts!

  7. I like how you design your quilts so there is lots of room to quilt feathers in the background! :)
