I loved quilting this one............


This is a beautiful quilt by Connee of St. George. I love quilting for her because she allows me to just do what I want and that is always fun. I have had this one for a little bit longer than I wanted to because I was so sick, so I hope she will forgive me on that part when she sees the quilt herself.


I struggled for a little bit to figure out what to quilt in the sashing, but I am pleased with the cross-hatch that I did. It really separates the sashing from the block and the feathers in the border.



I quilted my small swirl filler for the insides of the block. I wanted the star block pieces to really stand out. I stitched in the ditch around the stars and filled in the background fabric with the swirls. I love it!!!


This is my favorite feather section! When I do free-hand feathering I try to play with it and have fun. I try to have it be as uniform as possible, but sometimes when you start a quilt and get to the end, you forget exactly what you did at the beginning, that is why you can see that this feather and the one below are a little bit different. But I think they are both beautiful in their own right!

I swear someone could bring you just a plain old bed sheet and your quilting would make it beautiful! This quilt is beautifully pieced and your quilting just enhances it. Love it and I'm sure Connee will too!
