This is Lynn’s Catawampus Quilt and the pattern is by Freckled Whimsy, you can find it here. The fabric line she used is called Felicity by Cynthia Coulter. She asked for custom quilting so I quilted a free hand feather motif in the white areas and since the square of print fabric were all different sizes I just highlighted the diagonal design by added three lines. Quilting diagonal lines on a longarm is a bit of a pain but so worth it on this quilt!
The ice is finally 4 inches thick so safe to walk on by the shore. I had my son out there with me just in case!
I wanted to share a tip with you about how I marked the feather motif without really marking it! There is a great tool called the Clover Hera Marker and what it does is just leave a indent in the fabric, no ink! Here is the tool and the ruler I used. I marked two diagonal lines first to find the center and to use as a guide to keep my feathers contained in that quarter section. Then I did two more lines, horizontal and vertical, to use as my center guide for my feathers.
So I now have lines to use as a guide with no worries of having to remove later! Love this tool.
I then free hand quilted the feathers making sure I did the same number of plumes in each section so they balanced.
You can see the colour of the fabrics so much nicer in the indoor pictures! This is my last custom quilt before my December break. I have two more quilts to finished and then I can work on my own projects!
