the 2014 Bloggers Quilt Festival

I saw this happening before and saw this happening right now. So I decided to jump in!

I am entering this quilt to the Home Machine Quilted Quilts category. (If you have read my blog about this quilt, you don’t have to read again.)

Wall hanging. Appliqué, machine stitched, machine quilted.

Whatever the reason, I wanted make a quilt with a feather motif. The paper piecing, strip piecing didn’t appeal to me so I went for the applique.

I made a trial version in very small first. That made me wanting to make a bigger bolder one because I wanted show more of fabric in each section and wanted play with quilting more.

I doodled a lot on this quilt on the feather and background.

A lot of motifs on the background. Leaves, trees, feathers, flowers, pebbles.

And on the border they are more decorative like a picture flame.
