Underwater Adventure #2

Robin's quilt had several large plain blocks that lent themselves to fancy quilting. I had fun designing and fitting this funky feather in one of the larger squares. This feather always ends up looking fabulous, but it takes FOREVER to stitch all those itsy-bitsy, teeny-weeny circles around the edges. It was worth it though. Robin was very happy with the results. Her selection of hand-dyed cottons (which she died herself), lace, velvet, seersucker and a variety of other fabrics, in combination with the wacky overall design of the quilt squares gave this quilt an unusual funky feel. The design of the quilt also allowed for a wide range of funky stitching designs. I had fun playing around on this one. There's a lot more of where this came stay tuned everybody!!!!
