Quilt Qwazy Queens Blog Hop 2018 and Giveaway!

This year Marian at Seams to be Sew challenged us Quilt Qwazy Queens to finish up a UFO project.  I remembered I had these two blocks that I'd never done anything with.  Originally they were going to be baskets for applique, but I wasn't in the mood to do that.


Quilt Qwazy Queens 2018   

I decided the thing to do was to make two more blocks in similar, but different fabrics and put them together.  Here's what happened.  I really like it, but I felt like it needed a border because I really didn't want to try to hit all those triangle tips with my binding.



You can see that I alternated colors for my border too.  I like the contrast that it gives.  I also had a lot of fun quilting this quilt.  It's for my friend Susan who loves turquoise.


Yes, those are my feet.  Oops.  Here you can see the detail of the feathers and the wavy lines I used in the triangles.


And here is the feather I quilted in the center.  I used 28 weight Aurifil thread in the top for this.  I like the additional dimension the thicker thread gives though it was a little fussy for me.
