It's day 31 of my Extended 31 Day Challenge. I just finished Thelma's quilt and LOVE how it turned out.
It wasn't till I took Thelma's quilt of my machine and laid it out on the floor....that I fell in love. It turned out better than I could have imagined!
Knowing I wanted to do some feathers in the open area's I used double batting, Hobbs and Warm and White. I think this helped the feathers show up, since most all the fabric had a busy pattern.
I opted to not do any extra quilting in the 1/2 square triangles because I wanted those to stand out as just being 1/2 square triangles. I stitched in the ditch for them and really like how they stand out as being bold and surround the feather area's like a grid.
I used a light tan thread throughout the whole top and white thread for the back. It took me about 10 hours to do up.
Thelma's piecing was phenominal and the quilt in the end was an absolutely beautiful square quilt!
