This quilt is my latest effort in perfecting my feather. My 86 y/o mother made quilt top. I put the border on it and quilted it with my Tin Lizzie.
I quilted a circle of feathers in each of the white blocks. It gave me lots of room for practice. Being left handed I realize my feathers are "backwards" but if I try to reverse them it doesn't flow easily and they are not very pretty.
This border is a feather with a swirl inside it. I like it but there is definantly more thread in the spine where I had to backtrack to put the swirl in each fealther.
The four patch blocks were quilted with a large clover-like flower that matched the tone-on-tone print in the white blocks.
This quilt was made as a retirement gift for the secretary in my office. She really liked it. It is big enough to be a comforter for her bed. This is a bright, happy quilt that cries SPRING!!!! We need that this year after such a long, cold winter.
Nana has her arms full!! I am blessed and happy!!
