Feather stitchin’ Tuesday………………

A client quilt (block-of-the-month)… Be forewarned……this is a photo-heavy post……………..






And some real texture back shots……






Yes, that’s still the back……complete view to come when complete………….


The pieced back contained some leftover/orphan blocks plus the label which got quilted in!!!!!

Thread: (top) Marathon poly,(40 wt.) (non-metallic gold) and (bobbin) Connecting Threads Essential Pro poly (70 wt). Batting: Hobbs Heirloom cotton/poly (80/20). An all-over hand-guided  feather motif in the center and tomorrow I will mark the spine for a feather border. Stitched on Ms Sweetie (HQ Sweet 16).

      Thanks so much!!! They are such a great fill and really (now that I’ve done them so many times) relaxing!!!!! A wonderful e2e!!!!! Not sure how I’ll do the border though. I do have to keep in mind what the client is willing to pay!!!!!!
