Sue B is at it again, churning out yet another sweet charity quilt. (Do you remember the movie by that name, starring Shirley MacLaine?) This quilt is to be auctioned for a good cause. No one in Sue's guild would help her out with the quilting, so she contacted me, and I said yes. Sue and I have been quilting friends from afar for years, ever since we were matched for some quilts through Quilts of Valor. We have never met, but one of these days, I hope that changes.
She does beautiful work. I think you can tell that she puts her heart into it. So when I received it in the mail and took it out of the box, I fell in love with the border print -- peonies and lilacs, my favorite flowers when it comes to scent, and I decided to quilt it romantically.
The block itself was a four patch stack and whack. I had seen these before but had forgotten how complex they can make the resulting block look. Sue and I love feathers, so I did a square feathered wreath on it for her.
The sashings are little feathers in a very regimented path. I think it makes them look like there are little hearts piled one on top of the other.
While my IQ was stitching out the perfect feathers for Sue's quilt, I made some pillowcases to go with my king size D9P quilt (see earlier posts). I also finished all the machine applique for my Fons & Porter Love of Quilting magazine quilt, but that's another story.
