My aunt and cousin made a king size quilt and I offered to do the quilting. As usual I had some general ideas, but not a specific design in mind.
The quilt is a log cabin with a pinwheel setting.
I drew out some sample blocks and started drawing. I knew I wanted feathers in the cream section, but what should I do in the colored sections.
1st idea: Double feathers. I really like how it looked, but I think its too many feathers (yes, I really did say that).
2nd idea: Replace one of the feather sets with some swirls. I really like this one, and it may be a keeper. But, wasn’t quite singing to me.
3rd idea: Feather wreath. And although I really like how it looks. My wreaths still need a lot of work. And being such light fabric you would see all my learning. I think I’ll save my practice wreaths for a busier quilt.
