    Akbelles sent me 3 quilts..this is one of three.

    This is a Connecting threads kit.....and she gave me freedom to quilt this how I wanted. I micro stippled in the background color behind the geese so the geese could pop out and take center stage...
    The sashing design is leaves...as all the fabrics are florals and the leaves just compliment the fabrics and design of the quilt.
    The border I went back and forth of whether I should quilt feathers or flowers or both. I decided that some wavy....random feathers would be pretty and fit with the theme of the quilt but also give it some movement because the design is very "perfect" and linear.


    AkBelles sent warm and natural batting for this quilt.
    I quilted this on my INNOVA. NO pantograph or computer quilting all quilted freehand.
    Thanks for looking!
