    Silver Feathers on black...quilted by Kevin

    Here's Kevin's latest wholecloth wall hanging. Someone tagged him earlier with the nickname "guns and feathers" because of his cap, and he insisted I use it for this post..lol.

    Anyway, he quilted a piece of Blank's Fusion Illusion in Night. He used silver thread for the feathers and then stippled around them with black thread.

    I think it turned out very pretty...thanks for looking

    He used Coats Sylko in Grey Cloud for the feathers and So Fine for the black stippling around the feathers.

    His nickname reminds me of Smoke & needles, which is Dusty Farrell and a few other quilters. I thought it was something Dusty did before I read your post.

    Wow, that's super quilting! Maybe he needs a cape not a cap for SUPER QUILTER!

    Simply beautiful!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    It takes a lot of courage to quilt with silver on black. Also a lot of talent. He seems to have both.
