Joan hand-pieced this beautiful quilt and did a fabulous job. I love the colors she chose. I didn't even realize it was hand pieced until I took it back to her.
It's 92 x 92, and I used 5 different colors of thread.
There are 4 center blocks on-point that are the same, and 4 in the corners that are the same.
The rest of them are all different.
Here are the center blocks with green sashings between. I quilted a small feather circle in the center, with line dancing and hooks in the rest. The sashings have a wiggly line.
I quilted line dancing and hooks in the 4 corner blocks:
There is a floral block that separates the others, and I quilted a feathered wreath in each of those:
One of the remaining blocks - line dancing and hooks -
There is a tan and pink border around the center blocks. I followed the pattern of the cream paisleys in the tan border, and put large and small loops in the pink:
The next center border is green, and I put feathers in there:
I added feathers in the setting and corner triangles:
Next comes an outer green border, then a floral one. The green has loops like the pink, and a simple meander in the floral since not much else would show:
The outer border is full of swirly feather. I love how they came out. They really make the quilt. I pre-marked the vine, but the feathers are all free hand
The backing is the same as the pink on the front.
