I love the colours of the small prints and checks, made fresh by the white sashing. Each checkerboard block is stipple quilted in the main colour of that block.
The white sashing was a great area to try my hand at some free-motion feathers. I didn't mark these out beforehand, just used the needle and thread as my 'pencil'.
I was quite happy with how the feathers turned out.
This quilt was finished about 5 years ago and you can see I was starting to wander across to the brighter, fresher colours (though as I've said previously, I still do love the antique-type look, I just don't tend to sew it much at the moment). It's interesting to see how your tastes change over the years.
There hasn't been much sewing around here with sickness in the house, but what is going on here....?
Something is brewing!!
