This beauty was made by Pat. A lucky granddaughter will be receiving this one. I stitched in the ditch around the Celtic applique. Pat stitched all of it down by hand, and did a lovely job. I decided the centre block would look nice with a frame and feathers and some small stippling next to the applique.
I echoed around the butterflies a few times and then filled the remaining area with feathers that filled the rest of the background areas of the quilt.
The border framing the centre block got some curling "nemeshing" feathers.
I also stitched in the ditch around the log cabin sections and added a variety of petals and curls. The outer border was treated with piano keys and swirls.
Here you can see the entire quilt layout that includes a pillow tuck section with a lovely floral applique.
I love how this section came out!
