Kathy's quilt - finished!

Kathy graciously gave her permission for me to share some photos of her quilt with you, now that it's completed. You can click on any of the photos for a larger version.

Notice her amazing piecing! She did not miss a point on this quilt.

I love the touches of applique, especially at the corners.

The scalloped border is the perfect finish for this, don't you think?

Nicely done, Kathy!

I'm headed up Saddleback Mountain today with some friends. It's about 4 hours to the top, and could be cold up there (it had snow on it yesterday? Friday? morning). It's a special hike, and on it we will be saying a final goodbye to someone close to us who passed away in April.
Cross your fingers for us about the weather.

All the best to each of you,

You gave me a little surprise--I live near a Saddleback Mountain, too. But it's in Southern Caloifornia. Kathy's quilt is very beautiful.

Even though the piecing is wonderful, your quilting is more awesome!!
Where did you learn to do those-are they feathers? I LOVE them.

Beautiful. Is it her own original pattern? I would like to know the name if it isnt.

Lisa said...

Thank you gals!

The pattern is from Quilter's Newsletter Magazine #372. (Thanks Kathy!)

I'm not sure where I learned to do feathers like that...they're sort of a natural outgrowth of the feather method made popular by Karen McTavish a few years ago...some quilts need fancy feathers!
