This is Lynn's Hourglass quilt, it is a Random Threadz design. She was working on this quilt at our last guild retreat and I was so happy to hear that she was planning on bringing her quilt to me to quilt...you know I love batiks and curved piecing on quilts.
Lynn brought the pattern show how she wanted it quilted.... all feathers. So I did a bit of searching on the internet and found out Legacy Quilting had digitized patterns for this particular quilt design. Well I don't have a computer on my longarm so I just used these designs as my inspiration! They are all free hand, I just marking in the spines with chalk to keep the spacing even. I really like how this feather design fills in the hourglass spaces. I also really liked their feather design for the circles, it is a nice change from a wreath style feather.
I piano keyed the outer burgundy border for contrast. Funny the last two quilts I have done, both for Lynn, I piano keyed the outer border. I had never done piano keys on a quilt before these two. Guess I was just waiting for the right quilts to come along.
I was able to clean a tiny space on the lake to take this picture, -34 this morning!
Here are the designs that I based my feathers on.
