My Feathered Star quilt took 2nd

Recommended Posts

The Feathered Star quilt that I did last summer took 2nd place in it's category at the Mid Valley Quilt Guild Show. I was so surprised. Here is a picture of the quilt with the ribbon....

Libby, I can't remember which batting I used.:( When I do a customer quilt, I write it all down, but for myself, I just use what's handy!! I need to learn to write things down for myself too!

Thanks everyone. I was talked into entering this quilt and I really didn't think it would win. I was happily surprised to see the ribbon on it. ;)

PattyJo, your quilt is very beautiful and unusual in its technique. I'm curious about the raised twisted effect you got with the thin inner border -- is it stuffed? Or if not, the twist seems so consistent -- how did you do that? I love the look!

Hi Joan,

I did a wiggle stitching line over the seam rather than a SID on both sides and that is just the way it turned out. I guess my wiggles are consistent! LOL I too liked the look and have used that on a couple of customer quilts as well. I think it looks like a soft rope and no there isn't any additional batting in there. Just the way it came out!:)

Patty Jo, as Heidi said, you are looking good. Love avatars that look like the people now, not 30 years ago. lol..

The quilt is so pretty, I think it should have taken Best of Show and Viewers Choice too... it really is just gorgeous.

CONGRATS
