Horse Feathers



One more quilt that got finished this year! Yup, I started the New Year by getting some tops quilted that were just laying around. Now before you think I did all the work to get them quilted - NOPE. Here is the other quilt that Bonnie so lovingly quilted for me!


The name of this pattern was Horse Feathers, so of course I told her this quilt had to have feathers! Otherwise work her magic! And magic she did! Isn't it wonderful! I still need to sew down the binding on the back, I can't wait to get that done so I can wash it and get it all crinkly! But I wanted to take advantage of the sunshine and working from home the other day and get a picture. Oh and I forgot to take a picture of the back. But what would you put on the back of a quilt called Horse Feathers? Funky Chickens of course!

Ohh, very nice!

I especially like the way the horsefeathers star seems to have a dark blue square in the center, and lighter blues toward the points. And I think the chickens on the backing are cute! :)

I love it, just the type of quilt for me. You did a wonderful job. Who makes the pattern? I've done a feathered star with much smaller pieces.

Bonnie sure does a nice job with the quilting. This is a quilt I really want to do one of these days. It looks just great hanging on your quilt rack.
