    JoyHigdon sent me her version of "Snake river Log cabin" from the Judy Martin's log cabin quilt book.

    This particular pattern I quilted once before (it was also entered in a show and received ribbons...YAY!) . However, I didn't quilt them the same. This one felt more earthy to me..so I added some leaves....I also feel like all the work that goes into this quilt deserves it's own authenticity. Joy went to a lot of work, time and energy and this deserves to have it's own feeling.

    So much like the other ..I followed the trails in the pattern..I think that is the best way to compliment this quilt. I think for myself personally I couldn't put an allover type of pattern on this quilt and be happy with it (just my personal preference).

    I quilted a feathered wreath in the center...all the red/brown areas have a feather to fill the trail...the white areas have different leaves. Along with the earth tone type colors many of the fabrics had leaves....I thought this was appropriate.
    In the end I love the finish on this one! I pray Joy does as well!

    I quilted this freehand on my INNOVA. I used HObbs polydown batting.

    Thanks for looking!

    your feathers and vines are so lovely and precise! That is so hard to do... how long did it take you to get it right on the long arm?

    I hate to say it because it makes people feel bad. My gift is not my own.....so I catch on pretty quickly. Thanks.

    To me quilting is so much more then just a means of holding the 3 layers of a quilt together. It is ALL about the texture and enhancing the piecing. But then you know that about me as well as I know you feel the same way. The amount of possiblilites we have available to achieve that end is what can be so overwhelming, to choose just the right quilting design for a quilt. It takes a lot of thought sometimes. Sometimes we are lucky and it comes to us right away. I love the thoughtfulness you put into your quilting. You definitely acheived the perfect balance of texture and enhancement with this one. I can't imagine Joy not liking what you have done here.
