Lone Star with Feathers


I talked with the lady that made this quilt and told her I would post photos today. So here it is. I hope she is happy with the quilting. It is a gift and I think she will not want to give it up when she sees it in person.


I have used mostly lime green thread, so much fun. Some of the blue background quilting has a dark blue thread.


She wanted some feathers in the background areas and the boarders.


I just loved working on this quilt. The fabrics were so nice, love batiks. The back of the quilt is a Lime flannel so it has a warm feeling to it. Thank you for sending me your quilt.

I added this to Linky Party Tuesday.

Today my stitch group is getting together to sew. I am taking my hexagons to work on. We normally do not take our machines but try to work on hand stitching.

  2. Cathy, I really love how you did the center of the lonestar, such a nice surprise to see something other than cc, and I especially love how it forms a secondary pattern.

  3. Wonderful feathers Cathy! Some day I need to just bite the bullet and give them a try.
