A Feathered Finish…………………

To continue yesterday’s progress (here), and looking very good…….

This was a block-of-the-month, sponsored by JJ Stitches of Sun Prairie,WI. Quite a stunning pattern, don’t you think?? My client had to work through a few errors in some of the kitted blocks, which added an unnecessary level of anxiety to the quilt’s construction, but the end result is amazing!!! Need some more proof?????

It was picked up last eve with many smiles of appreciation.

But wait!!!! Her quilt buddy came along with her and brought the backing for…………her version of this same quilt……more FMQ fun ahead, for sure!!!!!

Thread: (top) Glide poly; (bobbin) Connecting Threads Essential Pro poly (70 wt).

The batting provided was by Fairfield (a cotton/poly) that was somewhat of a challenge. I’ve not had positive experiences with this brand in the past. The uneven, thick/thin, texture is found in most all the batts I’ve come across, so be aware of this if you purchase something from that company.

Now, on to the day. Til next time…….

      Thnx so much, Esther!!! The hardest part was seeing the black thread stitching as I did it but the finish was so worth it!!!! Not sure of the color thread I’ll use on the next one!!!!!!

    Neat quilt design–I like the way it’s so scrappy and appears to be just sort of fitted together in a random way, although I know there’s nothing random about it!

    What a different design. Your quilting truly sets it off.
