She had a pile of quilts waiting to be quilted at the shop, and I decided to surprise her and get them all done. I almost did. I still have 1 or 2 left over from this year.
On this one, the fabric and pattern was so busy that I didn't really want to add to the business with an in-your-face quilt design. Instead I used a really light colored thread (I think I used So Fine! Putty, which is kind of like an ecru-colored thread). I quilted an all-over feather, going edge to edge and meandering the spine across the quilt top before filling in with the feathers.
It turned out looking great. And guess what? Mom was so surprised to find 3 of her quilts in a ginormous box on Mother's Day. She had quite the surprising holiday, especially since we had stolen her cell phone and replaced it with an iPhone 4S. heh heh heh. She wasn't too happy about having her phone stolen, but now that she knows how to use it, she totally loves it.
When I find the rest of the pictures I took of the other quilts, I will post them on here, because she did some beautiful quilt tops.
