I finished quilting and binding a quilt earlier this year. I first participated in a Challenge approximately 2 years ago. We put our fabric in a bag, then switched it with another person's bag, and brought back a completed top, supposed to be finished around 24 inches square. I got back a fabulous feathered star. So, of course it needed fabulous quilting.
I did intense echo quilting within the star. I wanted the star points to be the focus, so I only quilted around them, not on them.
I really like the lines echoing around the center.
Then, I had to put feathered wreaths in the big spaces. These helped me on my journey to master feathers. I'm still on the journey, but much further ahead.
I am enjoying this, especially because I never planned on making a feathered star, but thought they were cool looking. Now I have one, without making one. And I still think they are cool looking.
It isn't every day I can work on my own quilts, as I try to keep up with customer work. But, when I do, I am so excited!
Keep on Sewing!
