I took it off the frame this morning. I’m pretty pleased with it all in all. It took 8-10 hours total but then I only quilt for an hour or so and then take a break. The quilt is so large I don’t really have a place to lay it out properly. Sure hope my client likes it 🙂 On the first picture I have it laid out on the living room floor. Unfortunately, it makes the quilt a little out of focus.
Here my valiant husband is trying to hold it up. He’s done a great job and you can see the quilting a bit better. He say’s I have to start making smaller quilts. Hah!
I do like the look of the less formal feathers. These are all done by chalking the sections and then hand-guiding the feathers. Each center is just a bit different that the one next to it but they all look like they belong.
So now it’s off to make the binding and sew it down. I will be sewing it to the front and hand stitching it down in the back. A long job but I enjoy it. Now I have to decide on my next project!
