Posts Tagged ‘cable quilting designs’

This quilt was SO much fun to quilt!! It was perfectly pieced and it screamed “FEATHERS”  to me the first time I saw it! This quilt was pieced and quilted for the Wild Rose Quilt Shop in Orting, WA. The Wild Rose is a fabulous quilt shop and it is worth visiting if you are ever in the Seattle/Tacoma area.  Please visit the Wild Rose website at www.thewildrosequiltshop.com

Last year, the Wild Rose was one of the quilt shops highlighted in the Quilt Sampler magazine. The original of this quilt was made to commemorate this event. This quilt was made (with a few changes from the original) and kits of it will be for sale soon.

The quilt is large, about 93 x 93 inches. I like to hang the quilts on my clothsline and take photos, but the weather has been so wet and nasty lately. The bottom of the quilt would have had to drag on the ground and I didn’t want to get this fabulous quilt dirty. So, when I delivered it to the quilt shop, some of the ladies there held the quilt so that I could take photos.

You can’t see it, but in the red, diagonal “bars” I quilted a double cable design.

I loved the open spaces on this quilt and I quilted my “Traveling Feathers” free hand design in the corners. I love the texture that this pattern makes! The border is quilted with a simple “straight” edge feather.

The large, blue, half square triangles were free hand quilted with a split feather design and the light triangles were quilted with ribbon stipple.

It may be hard to see, but in the large square above the star, I quilted more split feathers. Also, in the light-colored small squares, there are small feather plumes. The blue squares are quilted with Continuous Curves.

Here is a larger view of the middle of the quilt. There is a LOT of quilting in this quilt, but I enjoyed every minute of the quilting and it looks great!

The quilt is to be hung in the Wild Rose Quilt Shop and when it is bound and hanging, I’ll take more photos!
