This is a quilt I was doing as a BOM with a few women in my quilt guild. It's been a project of a year and is nice to have finished. When quilts are finished they look so beautiful and I am enjoying this one. I think I'll keep it hanging on my staircase railing for a while.
It is Ode to the Thirties, designed by Lori Smith. I started with 30's reproductions, but as I didn't want to keep buying, I started using fabrics in my stash that seemed to go along.
It took some time to quilt, as I had to come up with something for each square.
The appliqued squares I did different fillers in the background.
Some pieced squares could have the same effect. Here is feathers,
flowers inside each flower,
The pieced blocks also had feathers, fancy line dancing,
and simple line dancing. There was a lot of that.
The border was a feather. This is now ready for my guild's quilt show in February.
