This top was made by a very talented lady who loves the design process as much as the piecing. It's the second quilt top I've quilted for her and I've been amazed both times. Her creativity, use of color and design elements really shine.
Love those flying geese!
I like the log cabins too. Especially the ones which form a star around the central cabin. My feathers are usually shorter and plumper, so I had to practice to make them long and slender.
You can notice it a little more from the back side with the yellow threads forming intersecting lines. The back is really cool too. It's sort of a fourth of a log cabin block. Of course, I didn't get the whole back either. (Yes! That's an AU for Auburn University ... this family has special connections there just as I do. Go Tigers! Hi Jenna ... and Christopher and Clifton!)
I plan to squeeze in time to visit the show this weekend amongst other plans. So if I can photo this quilt while it's hanging, I'll post a photo of the whole thing.
One last photo. The borders were just as I practiced on my last post. Again, the fabrics were a little to busy to let the quilting stand out, but they still had to be quilted and I enjoyed using circle templates to create that arc.
Until then ...
Enjoy your day (or in this case : night)
