    Birds of Paradise Quilting by Suezquilts

    This is a quilt I recieved from Joseph, I have done several for him and he loves applique`, I love to show off his work as he is gifted. (I only say this because he is, and I can't applique if I even had an extra hand) The quilting is done with my Gammill with the Statler and without. Much of the free hand is done for the backround fill.
    I'm not quite finished with the quilt, it is such a nice sunny day today I couldn't resist taking it outdoors for some pictures.

    The borders I used Sherry Rogers-Harrison's feathers and using a rail type pattern on the inside. Joesph plans on scalloping the borders (I suggested this) I am amazed at how the feathers will be a perfect scalloped border.

    I can't figure the picture loading, here I thought I could

    Enjoy the photos!

    BRAVO to both of you!! Another fine example of a stunning quilt made more stunning by outstanding and appropriate quilting!! Great job all around.

    Tell us ... will we see this beauty at any shows? It's worthy.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.
