Creepy Feathers

That’s the theme of today’s quilt…..creepy feathers. When Tula first told me about this line of fabric (way back when it was still just sketches on paper), I suggested that we try to do feathers with spiderwebs in them. It sounded a little dark and unexpected, so I knew that she was right up her alley!  I didn’t have the space for them in the other quilts, so I was glad to finally get the chance to quilt some “creepy feathers”

How about a closer look?

I know I say this about every quilt…..but I had so much fun quilting it!

First, let’s talk about the feathers. I love when a quilting design looks like its going behind the blocks on a quilt, I think it adds depth. Getting the illusion just right was a little tricky, but I think I pulled it off for the most part.

And what about that spider???

That pesky spider kept making little webs everywhere! I wanted to smash it, but then it spun Tula’s name in the web…….I decided it must be Charlotte (as in charlotte’s web) so I left her alone…….She is one busy spider!

I know I am being silly, but what can I say, I am sleep deprived and slap-happy!

And, again, the custom quilt backing:

This quilt will be hanging in her booth at quilt market, so make sure to stop by and check it out!

That’s it for now! I have to get to planning a birthday party. We are having my daughter’s birthday party tomorrow ( I tried to have it after quilt market, but she wasn’t buying it!).  The theme of the party is is ‘last minute party’. To make it as authentic as possible, I have waited until the last minute…….sigh!

Happy Quilting!

    I love how dimensional the quilt looks. When you are doing multiple different designs on a quilt do you complete each section individually as you come across the section or all the same sections at one time? Hope this made sense.

    • Thanks! I loaded the quilt sideways and then just quilted it as I came to it. Does that make sense?? For example, I didn’t quilt all the feathers and then go back to do the rest, Let me know if that helps!!!

  17. My new favorite…. you and Tula are like Peanut butter and Jelly- this rocks on so many levels… wish I could see it in person.

  18. So awesome. I really want to get a hold of that fabric line. I’m a huge fan of Halloween and macabre type things. This is right up my alley!

  19. There’s some playful quilting going on here. Lots of interesting activity quilted in.

  20. Awesome and inspiring; detailed and interesting….perfect!

  21. my mind is boggled. that is amazing!!!
