A quilt for Mary


Hey there. Here is the quilt I finished last night after my little spooks went to bed. I think it looks like moss and lichen. Mary wanted the quilt to be quilted with a simple all over design and a custom boarder.


I quilted these figure 8 designs in the main body of the quilt and a big fat feather for the outside boarder.


The feather is my favorite right now. It is in the style of Sally Terry. She has several books out, but the one I have is Hooked on Feathers. It is good and she has a really great technique if you are interested in different feathers.


I love the back of this quilt so much. Mary choose a great fabric for it, it feels like Art Gallery fabric and it makes a great swish sound.



All in all I am quite pleased with how this quilt turned out. Mary sent along some thread that she wanted me to use. It was a big cone of King Tut variegated cotton. I love King Tut thread, but I had a couple places where the top thread was not perfectly balanced with the bobbin, so I need to fix those spots with a self threading needle...I still have a bit of work before I send this fellow up to Canada.

Happy Quilting!
