Last Market Post & Feathered Star

I almost forgot to write this post! How possibly could I? This is the last post I will write about Spring Market and then I will move on. I think. No guarantees at this point. I think I need more coffee.

Oh, and I almost forgot - there's still time to enter in my latest giveaway. Remember you can enter up to once a day, it's really simple - just click here to head on over and enter to win!

Anywho, my Mom made this quilt to hang in the Timeless Treasures booth and I had the pleasure of quilting it:
 This is the Feathered Star pattern by Judy Niemeyer (Quiltworx). This is the smaller size, but there is a version in a queen size. I also quilted a queen size version not too long ago and you can see it here.
 This quilt features the new Tonga Punch line of fabrics that should be coming out in stores later this year.
 I loved seeing how the lighting in their booth showed off the quilting details.
 And here's some pictures I took when I finished quilting it. This quilt had tons of texture.
 I find that quilts of ours that are going to travel around a bunch, and possibly will live folded up in boxes or suitcases hang much better if they are densely quilted. I think I went a little overboard with this quilt...
 Maybe not, I tried to keep the range of motifs simple and tried to tie in all of the quilt elements together.
I really like how this center turned out. I tried to combine the straight lines and swirls to fill the space and mirror the other spaces in the quilt.

I've been quilting up a storm and I will try to share more of those pictures with you all. Until then, gotta get back to the machine!
