Flower in a Pot #9 - The Quilting

It's time for quilting!  It's one of my favorite parts of the process.  I decided to combine a bunch of different feathers together.  I got the idea from Judi Madsen's iquilt class where she teachers combining feathers.

Below you can see the different types of feathers I used.  From the left it is a curl feather, a regular feather, a hammer feather, a hook feather, a regular feather, a hook feather, a regular feather a hammer feather.  It was fun changing it up.  After having quilted this piece I think using too many different kinds can be distracting.

When I quilted All Fired Up I used only 3 different kinds of feathers and I think it looks nicer.

Here is the final quilt with the rick rack detail in the binding.  I really like this finish and can't wait to use it again on something.  I bought shiny gold rick rack.  It almost looks like lame.  I can't wait to try it out on something.

The back of the quilt could use some stitching in the pot and flower.  I'll get there eventually!

I hope you get the chance to quilt today!


  1. This little flower pot is just THE cutest!!!! The many styles of feathers give awesome texture and matching the thread/fabric allowed you to have this variety beautifully!!!!

  2. Great work, your quilting is looking fabulous!
