First quilt of 2015--Jinny Beyer Lonestar


Recommended Posts

Last quilt before we pack up the Millie for a trip to Iowa. Naturally, I had major problems and spent a day troubleshooting. We replaced the bobbin assembly and re-timed and she purred like a kitten. So I'm sending her back for a spa treatment with only one day of stitching with the new bobbin assembly---go figure!  :D

This quilt is 103" square and I think it was a kit. Lots of SID with invisible thread and outlining of the designs in the JB signature striped fabric. Feathers across the triple-border, in the setting triangles and the purple corners. CC's of course, in the diamonds of the star. Wool batting, twelve pre-wound bobbins, and five thread color changes. It was a challenge--ten days of stitching all told.

Arrow right for quilting details after the link. Thanks for looking and Happy New Year!

Wow!Wow!Wow! Linda that is great. May I ask on your feathers in the triangles was that cc they way you showed in earlier tutorials? They look great

 

 

Thanks for the great remarks!

 

I think what you're referring to are hooked feathers, where the feathers are stitched from the spine, curve and touch the previous feather, and return to the spine with a slight offset. There are two strokes to stitch the feather. The triangle feathers are longarm feathers--spine marked and stitched, feathers down one side and then up the other. Then I stitched an echo to fill the space. That gives it the "double feather " look.

 

I learned how to mark and stitch feathers like this and also the running feathers in the triple border from Fancy Formal Feathers by Sherry Rogers-Harrison.
