Feathered Star Quilt

Wanda did this fabulous red and white feathered star quilt after taking a class from Marsha McCloskey. Two color quilts are so striking, I just love them! And Wanda did an amazing job piecing this quilt…so straight, so flat! Using thread color that matched as closely as possible, the feathers and feather-like (my new term!) border patters I think really make this look fun.  The stitch ‘n the ditch sets off each border, and the “P” in the middle of the star is a nod to their family surname (no hints here, eh?). I believe this is a gift, so hopefully the recipient will treasure it!

Happy quilting!

Pinwheel Baby Quilt

A sophisticated baby quilt for a new mom and dad (and dog)! This beauty was made by the Lowell Pine Needlers for their very own member, Marlene, who is expecting soon. What a lucky baby!

Feathers are placed only in the white areas of the pinwheels to really set off the visual pinwheel movement. Then a rope pattern was added in the sashing areas which adds to the simple, sophisticated palate, being that it has a similar density and flow.

Good luck with the baby Marlene! And happy quilting.
