Bloggers Quilt Festival -Fall 2014

 My second entry into the Bloggers Quilt Festival is my Breakfast at Tiffanys quilt and I am putting it in the Original design category.

 It is a lap sized quilt which I designed myself.  For the center I used a charm pack ( called Breakfast at Tiffanys) and the disappearing 9 patch block.  Wide cream borders gave me lots of room for machine appliqued flowers and feathers.



I quilted this one( freehand with no stitch regulator)  on my Gracie frame with a Janome 1600P .  I was very pleased with the quilting as my machine only has a 9" arm space which is not very big at all!

                                                                       Center section

                              Quilted feathers in the border with McTavishing and pebbles.

 The flowers/feathers were machine appliqued with a blanket stitch on my smaller Janome 601






 In opposite corners I added some prairie points just to frame the quilting.

The quilt has dusky pink binding but I can't find a photo.  I'll keep looking and come back and add it.

Thank you if you do give me your vote and also for visiting today.
Enjoy the festival.
Rhainon.

Hi Rhianon
Sorry, I've just left a comment on your owls and spelt your name wrong! sorry about that.
Your applique is a real work of art - amazing stitching. Do you use 2 layers of batting, or particularly high loft to get it to pop up so much?
I was also intrigued to see you use a Grace frame. I contemplated it but decided 9 inches wasn't enough. Do you find it makes a great difference to your quilting?
