Quilt Pattern - Deb's Feathers

This quilt was made over a two year period - one set of blocks at a time.

I started with a beautiful set of fat quarters and took my time making the blocks - enjoying each and every step.

I laid out my blocks according to the diagram in the book - with a few variations.

I really liked how it turned out.




I had even more fun piecing the back of the quilt.  I used several solid colors from my stash - greens and pink - and left over blocks from the front.  This is one of those quilts where the back is almost as pretty as the front.  At least I think so!

  1. A beauty! I wish I could slow down and take my time, but I want everything done yesterday (and it shows). Did you do the FMQ? It is lovely.

  2. Very pretty - I agree, the back is as pretty as the front.

I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
