Blogger's Quilt Festival Fall 2012

is hosting another online Quilt Festival
Here is my entry.  I did not make this quilt...it was made by Kimberly, owner of a local sewing machine and quilt shop.  I had the fortune of machine quilting her satin, embroidered quilt which hung in her booth at the 
Northwest Quilting Expo last month.
It measures approximately 90"x90". 
 Hobbs 80/20 was my choice in batting which shows off the quilting.  
I used Floriani polyester threads matching the satin perfectly and quilted feathers, feathers and more feathers inside the sashing and into the border.  Stitched in the ditch around each block and again more feathering inside the embroidered blocks with a McTavishing style background texture.
