    Carolyn brought me this quilt, its all out of reproduction fabrics, and it is beautiful, she said quilt it how ever you want. I looked at it and decided it needed to look vintage... I outline every triangle with a little longer stitch, to give it that hand quilted look, I did a feather wreath in the large squares and a small design in the smaller ones, I also did a feather and leaf motif in the large triangles, with a feather and vine border..
    It has warm and natural batting and the backing is a large blue flower that went perfect with the quilt. she loved it when she saw it, she said it looks exactly how she wanted...:)

    All free motion quilting.... thanks for looking

    Beautiful work! Why are you in "hiding". I would love to find someone that does longarm in my area, as I don't like to mail quilts.

    The quilt and the quilting are beautiful. I love the old fashioned looking quilts! I am saving fabric to make one for my very own.

    A good way to find a quilter is a recommendation from your local quilt shop or to join you local quilt guild/club. The show and tells are inspirational and informative.
