You know, it’s crunch time around here…..International Quilt Market is barreling down the road and I am hanging on for sheer life. This is the fourth quilt market that I have quilted for and it gets busier and busier each year. I love every minute of it!! While I am working on more market quilts, let me share something non-market related.
I finished up this quilt awhile ago for Gina. It’s a gorgeous quilt that gave me plenty of room for the quilting, my favorite! Gina was great to let me have my way with her quilt so I opted for feathers that travel along the white zig zags……probably not very shocking to you all! You guys know I have much I love feathers!
I am always careful to think about contrast between quilting designs. I want to make sure that my hard work shows! So when quilting the feather in the white fabric, I used quilting to echo the outside of the feather. Then to help set off the feather even more, I quilted a very dense back and forth line.
Now if you are just dying to see this quilt in person, you actually can…….without going to Gina’s house. She is opening a fabric store called The Little General the first week of June. According to Gina:
The Little General is a fabric boutique located in Reynolda Village, Winston-Salem, NC. Introduced by Karen Gray Design, (a featured quilt shop in Better Homes And Gardens), The Little General is equally committed to providing space for beauty, inspiration, creative play, happiness and community. Founded on the belief that creativity is invaluable, rewarding and productive, The Little General seeks to share joy in beauty and creation with the community. Join The Little General in changing the world one stitch at a time.
And to make it even better, Tula Pink will be doing a book signing there as well. If you live in the area you should check it out!
