Janet's Quilt for Christmas


This quilt has been hanging in my studio for months and it came with a backing that was a couple feet too short. So, I've been waiting on Janet to bring me a new backing. I think she may have briefly forgotten about it, but I didn't. I quilted it and put the binding on for her for Christmas. She was quite surprised.





I used Quilters dream poly batting, So Fine white on top and Bottom Line in the bobbin, continuous curves and loopy things in the blocks and I'm not sure what the white square designs are called. I drew lines dividing the block into eighths and feathered away. Not perfect by any means, but the muslin was a good practice space for me.

Perfect or not....I really like it.

they look like pretty good feathers to me...I love the back of quilts as much as the front, you can really appreciate the quilting!

Nice, Ruthie! Those big blank alternate blocks always give me pause. Nice!

Perhaps it's not perfect, but it is perfectly beautiful.
