Feathered Star Quilt

This feathered star quilt was made by Viki W. and what a beauty it is. She used some asian-inspired fabrics and it really sparkles. She is going to show this at the upcoming EVQ Quilt Show in Eugene this coming weekend, so if you want to see it up close and personal, head out to the show.

I was inspired by her excellent piecing and sharp points! The longarm quilting designs merged the traditional (feathers) and the modern (gentle meandering swirl with straight line border treatment) to compliment her beautiful feathered star.

Feathers on the Sand

Oregon coast in October

My friend Carol send me this really cool video of an artist “painting” on a sandy beach. I think it looks like quilting feathers!

Enjoy your day!


Gray is the New Black

This beauty of a modern quilt by Gerry B. certainly takes the cake. She used all sorts of crazy fabrics (I love that!) and set them all on a gray background. Gray is the new black! Or the new white! Not sure which, but all I know is I love gray. And the gray really makes the colors pop on this quilt.

Attention Scrapalicious Class people – this quilt would work if your scraps are big enough!

Hey, I did say cake. Anyone making one? Wanna share? (German Chocolate is my fav!)

Happy quilting!
