    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

    The center star. I did a feather wreath ruler work, SID and feathers in the largest points

    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.

    That quilt is absolutely stunning! I picked up this one at a local shop, it was a block of the month, but they were selling it as a package if you wanted to put out the $269. So I picked it up carried around the store for about 30 minutes and put it back. I wish now after seeing your quilt that i had bought it.
