This quilt took me a loooooong time (completed during the #feathersqal).  I faltered between giving up because it was too much work and loving it so much it was totally worth it.  I ended feeling the latter.  After all of the paper piecing and sashing work, I went for simple quilting… just in the ditch on either side of each strip… lazy but functional.




The back was pieced using one of my very favorite Anna Maria Horner prints of, well, feathers, another AMH print from her true colors collection, and some of Nest by Mark Hordyszynski that was used as the background in the front.





The binding is scrappy with a bit of every blue AMH fabric used on the top of the quilt.


Anyway, definitely the hardest and most beloved quilt I have made.

  1. This quilt is gorgeous! Isn’t it sometimes the ones that you struggle to finish that feel the greatest once actually done! This one is worth the effort–so beautiful! Nice job! I love the colors and the grey background is the perfect balance.
