My customer Terry did an amazing job putting this quilt top together. The fabrics and pattern combine to make a quilt that has an elegant, springtime feel. The quilting had to reflect and compliment these same qualities. At first I suggested that straight feathers be sewn in the sashing, but Terry really wanted undulating feathers. I am so glad she chose them because they really make the quilt! The mermaid hair sewn right up against the star blocks, as I have said in many posts, gives them a 3D affect and puts them in motion. Terry really wanted "poofy" stars, so I did minimal quilting in them. And poofy they were! She was very pleased with the way her quilt turned out. I was excited to take on the challenge of doing the job. It's not everyday a longarmer gets to stitch undulating feathers in somewhat narrow sashing with lots of intersections where the feathers have to overlap and under lap each other. After this beauty was finished, I found that I had acquired several new skills. Thanks Terry for the pleasure of quilting your quilt!
