I love how you can see the backing print as the sun is streaming through the quilt here! I've written quite a bit about the quilt top itself, but there is a whole new layer of amazing-ness on this quilt. Peer a little bit closer with me...
This was my first time sending a quilt out to a long-armer and I was a little nervous. But as soon as I opened up the box from Margaret Gunn, all anxiety was banished. I was simply blown away.
The feathers in relief!
The beautifully detailed side borders done in different shades of taupe!
All those clams and feathers together with intersecting waves outlining the single feather shape of the blocks!
I dropped everything - seriously everything because laundry and cleaning can WAIT - and got right to trimming and binding.
I had a whole roll of this gorgeous Tile print from Joel Dewberry ready and waiting for binding - a perfect complement to the Heirloom print I chose for the backing.
This quilt finished at 82 x 102 - by far the largest quilt that I've ever made! Now that it's finished, it's headed to the "master" bedroom to keep us snuggly in modern style.
