Tulip Garden quilting finished

Tulip Garden quilt

In 1986 I hand appliquéd this Tulip Garden quilt for my 3 yr old youngest daughter. Fast forward to October 2015 I had been practicing background fill in feathers on a muslin, I remembered this UFO. Over the years I would take it out and wondered how I would hand quilt it. My daughter is now 33 and expecting her third baby, if it's a girl this will be hers. 
 I quilt with a Bailey Home Quilter 17E I free motion quilt but I did use a stencil on the four corners and feathered from there. In the center I lightly penciled arcs to place large feathers then filled in with pebbles. Next I will post a pic of complete quilt.

Gypsy Wife Quilt

I have finished my Gypsy Wife Quilt, it's a flimsy but it's next in line for quilting. Using Kaffe Fassett fabrics exclusively with only a few additional fabrics, I love the vivid colors.
