Last week, I quilted the top using the all over feathers and I had fun! I love making feathers.
The top below was next on my “to quilt” list. The background is kinda creamy with a little yellow, a little gray and a little silver. The plan was to do more free motion, all over feathers — quick and then it would be done!
I washed a piece of wide muslin, loaded the backing, loaded the top and stuck in a piece of poly batting — not my favorite type of batting. The more I looked at the top, the more I said to myself that it really called out for more custom quilting.
But, it just has a muslin backing and you should’ve used a better piece of backing if you’re going to go to all that trouble.
This quilt would look so good with feathers and custom quilting.
But, you loaded it with polyester batting!
I love purple and green and gold together.
But, you have another quilt just like this one and it’s stuck in the closet and it has custom quilting.
What do you think won? Custom or overall feathers? Please vote in the poll over in the sidebar and tell me what you think I did or what you think I should’ve done. I will tell you — I didn’t change the backing or the batting.
