Last Summer I started the applique for Kim's Princess Feather pattern. I was asked to post it here, so here I go....
I do my applique a bit different from most people and I posted about it here.
Now for the pics...for lack of a better place, I pinned my blocks to a quilt top I had hanging.
I'm new to blogger and the pics aren't going where I think I'm putting them, so please forgive the odd placement?
I quilted the Princess Feather with 1/4 wreaths in each corner of the blocks and diagonal lines 3/4" apart in the backgrounds of the blocks and borders. I quilted in the ditch around all of the appliques and added a row of quilting through the center of each feather to give it a spine.
For the back of the quilt I used a white sateen weave cotton sheet. It was easy to quilt through, unlike a regular weave sheet, and it gives a pretty look to the stitches. I'm posting a pic of the back side so you can see the quilting a little better.
