At long last…the Princess Feather quilt is done! I started basting it for quilting on March 1..here we are 10 weeks later and it’s complete.
This quilt took quite a bit of time. The applique took 474 hours, the marking and basting 14 hours, the hand quilting 496 hours, and the binding 10.5 hours. A grand total of 994.5 hours. It measures 93″ x 93″.
The quilting was done with quartered feathered wreaths at each corner of the large blocks and diagonal lines .75″ across the rest of the design. In the center where the 4 blocks meet the wreath is complete, and I stitched around all of the appliqued bits. I couldn’t get the quilting to show up in the pics very well, so I took a pics of the back side in hopes it would show better.
I used a white cotton sateen weave sheet for the back and it quilted like butter. It feels so...
