I loved the custom ordered cushions I made last week and decided to make a quilt using the same block.
I am using my favourite batiks against a white background for maximum contrast.
4 completed blocks
I decided to do this as a quilt- as- you -go project because I have not made a quilt like that before and also because it is easier to turn the work when I'm stitching the circular feather in the middle.
I know you are not supposed to turn your work but I find it easier.
These are the batiks I will be using for the borders. I am planning to quilt lots of feathers in the borders.
So that is what I have been up to this week.
Before I go, I have one exciting thing to tell you. Remember the Quilt Blogger's Festival ? I was nominated to be a featured quilter ( thank you to whoever nominated me) and today is my day ! I just want to say a big thank you to Amy for organising it all.
I feel very honoured.
You can see the post at Amy's Creative Side.
Thanks for visiting.
See you all next time
