Quilted to Death

Without further ado....
"From This Day Forward"

(Don't look at the crappy background.)

Wedding quilt for a friend's daughter.

The pattern is on Moda Bakeshop by Karen Miller,
"Chevron With A Twist"
I did change Karen's applique to a house.

Lots of feathers, well...
cause I like feathers.

Two layers of batting, Hobbs80/20 on the bottom,
Tuscany wool on top.  SoFine #402 and Glide leather thread.

Karen's pattern is easy to follow,
very well written
and is quick to put together.

Karen also included several different layouts.

Just love this one. 
 Thanks Karen for a great pattern.
Have a good week.
