This quilt has been spread over a rocking chair in the bedroom for several weeks. I’m trying to come up with a quilting plan. Can you put too many feathers on a quilt? Feathers in the setting triangles, feathers in the ribbon border, feathers in the other borders?? Maybe that would be too many feathers. All I want to do is feathers . . feathers . . feathers.
I’m not doing trapunto . . I don’t think. I think I’ll use the Mountain Mist Gold batting which is 50/50 or maybe I’ll use Hobbs wool. I have plenty of both on hand.
I’m ready for a definite plan so I can get started. I’d love to get this quilted and finished and be able to enter it at Paducah. The quilting will make or break it. Oh . . the pressure!
Lest you feel sorry for me, I really don’t feel any pressure. It’s a quilt . . just a quilt. If it turns out pretty, I enter it in the shows. If it doesn’t it goes on my bed. Simple as that! Mom has already decided it would be perfect in her house so . . I’m sure it will find a home somewhere . . no matter how it turns out.
