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!
