Project Description

What are you most proud of? I am very thankful that I was able to complete this project on my home machine! What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you have quilt tops waiting to finish, don't be afraid to try quilting them yourself. This was my first large quilt that I did myself after taking Ann's course.

Phyllis S asked:
beautiful! The colors are stunning. What is the name of your pattern?
nmcclel answered:

schlemiel asked:
Really lovely. Which quilting technique from Ann's class did you use?
nmcclel answered:
I quilted the whole quilt on my domestic machine. In the center I did some swirl designs. In the first rust border I did some leaves on vines. In the green border I did some feathers. I used a green thread in the green border so my feathers are not very visible. I'll know better the next time.
