At our last guild meeting we exchanged our secret sister santa stockings. My secret sister gave me a lovely quilt that she had made with attached beading (because she knows how much I like beads) and then left it with a note for me to quilt, saying I could do a much better job than she could. I don't know - she is an expert handquilter, I am a machine quilter. Oranges & Apples!!! Anyway, here is the finished product, on my table with the advent wreath. I think they coordinate quite nicely.
This is the quilt. There is a String of silver beads around each of the purple squares.
I knew I wanted to quilt a wreath - as it was the Christmas Season and I knew I wanted to do a feather wreath. Free motion - no pattern....a fun project.
This is a terrible picture color-wise. The purple is a deep rich purple as seen in the other photos. For some reason, I couldn't get it to show as dark in the photo.
The triangles around the edge. The feathers continue - in the triangle and in the sashing. I did a large scroll over the outside borders and sashing.
Together, we have made a lovely quilt, I think.
