WIP Wednesday ~ 30s Stars

Remember this top?

I pieced it out in Arizona. I had planned to add borders, but then changed my mind. I put it on the frame and it languished there for several days. I wanted to quilt all over free hand feathers and practiced a bit on my whiteboard.

I turned the overhead lights off to take these pictures. 

It isn’t exactly what I had in mind, but I don’t hate it either.

I took inspiration from this pantograph.

It is going fairly quickly and I’ve learned something, so there’s that.

Have a great day!

    It looks wonderful! Such a lovely quilt and a great idea with the feathers. I’m trying to learn more freehand allover as well. I find it hard to keep a consistent look so will keep practicing. Thanks for the inspiration!

    Hi Katy,
    I love the fabrics in this quilt – it is so happy looking. You quilting matches your whiteboard draft very closely! I think you did a fabulous job, and I agree with your decision on no border (for what that’s worth). ~smile~ Roseanne
