This amazing quilt called "Fresh Cut Flowers" was pieced by Virginia Affleck. Amazing, simply amazing. I was totally nervous to quilt this quilt because she only spent like 400 hours piecing this thing. Wow, a lot of work.
I just had fun with feathering on this quilt, this quilt needed something beautiful and flowwy, feathers are perfect for that.
I used silver Highlight thread from Superior Threads for the background feathers and silver metallic thread for the flowers.
Well, pictures never give the quilts justice, but you get the idea. It took me 25 hours to quilt this one and so for one quilt a grand total of 425 hours of work, I am just glad I had the 25 hours, 400 hours takes a lot of patience and I am not there yet!
