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.

Wedding quilt

Last year it was baby quilts,
this year it's wedding quilts.
A friend's daughter is getting married,
so you know what that means...
yep a quilt.
I forgot to take a full view before picture,
but this is before I started quilting.
I had another quilt loaded but my thread order
did not come on Friday, so I took that one off the
frame and loaded this one, hoping to
finish it this weekend.
Of course, there has to be names
and dates.
Background fill
A little curved crosshatching and feathers.
 before background fill...
and after.
This quilt is modern meets traditional,
but I'm loving it.
Did I finish this weekend?
No, but close.
I had to replace the bobbin and my tension messed up
and I didn't feel like working on it so
I walked away.
Hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July.
Have a blessed week.
