    Thank you everyone for you kind words and comments on the sneak peeks I have been posting of this quilt.

    Karen McTavish said in a class "Do the hardest thing you can, you won't be disappointed in the results". She was right!

    I did not piece this quilt. My friend Meg took this baby on and did a darn good job. I loved this quilt from the moment I laid eyes on it in a photo and seeing it in person was a special treat. I wanted to enhance Megs peicing and make the quilt even more beautiful then it already was with my quilting. I wanted to try and keep the theme of the CW era so I went with elaborate Victorian style feathers (the CW was also the Victorian era!), loads of SID, ruler work cross hatching and a few stencils that kind of reminded me of CW era decorative arts. There is more SID than I have ever done before. Every one of those HST in the border was SID. I got very good at using a ruler with this one! :lol: So without any further babbling on my part... I have 9 pictures to load. I am really looking forward to all of your comments. Thanks!

    As much of the quilt as I could get in one shot

    Another angle, trying to get texture, wasn't too successful

    Taken inside with flash, colors are truer in the outside shots. In this shot you can see the shells I quilted around the star

    another close up, you can still see my chalk mark for the center stem of the feather, which is all the marking I do for feathers

    I've looked at this kit so many times. But don't think I can do it justice.

    You both did a fantastic job.:)

    STUNNING!!! STUNNING!! This is GORGEOUS! I love all the feather work...ruler work...and all the details. I know how you must feel to be finished...but it is also sad in a way to be done....It is a masterpiece. I hope Meg is keeping it.
