Susan G’s Quilt

Susan made this Washington Medallion quilt (pattern by Sue Garman) and I got to quilt it!

It’s definitely more traditional than my usual style, and so it was fun to get to play with more traditional quilting designs – like feathers!

Guys, I love feathers. It was so great to have free reign to quilt as many feathers as I wanted on this quilt!

I don’t think I went too over board 😀

7 thread colours on this one!

Colours can be deceiving — I always end up using more thread colours than I think I will. If you’ve been to one of my trunk shows, you’ll know I’m forever saying that the longer I’ve quilted the quicker I am to change thread colour. And that definitely held true with this quilt!

That’s it for me! I’m off to QuiltCon on Tuesday, where I’m teaching 5 classes and taking 2! It’s going to be a bit of a crazy week, but I’m super excited. If you’re going to be there, please say hi!

Later days,
Kathleen

PS: Can’t make it to my QuiltCon classes? I’m teaching a lot of the same classes at Quilt Canada this June in Mississauga Ontario,  or take it in the comfort of your own home with Kathleen Quilts LIVE!

  1. Such magnificent work! Your feathers are spectacular and I love how they puff up so beautifully. I’m wondering what batting you use to achieve this result?

  2. Beautiful quilt!!! So glad you got your feather fix…they are awesome!!! Have a blast at QuiltCon and I’ll have to send you a couple of pictures of 2 quilt tops I’m working on that were inspired by a quilt someone sent you to give them hints on how to quilt it!!
