Feathered Snowflakes- Finished!


I pieced this at the end of last winter (early spring 2008), sent it to be quilted last fall and finally recieved it back this month. I last blogged about it here.
This baby has had to wait a long time to be finished, but I think it was worth the wait.

These feathered stars did make me pull a few hairs out but I absolutely LOVE them. So worth it.
Aqua is my favorite color right now. So clear and crisp and happy.
Quilting by Wren Woodland of Utah. Look at how intricate it is! Wow! She did beautiful work.

Oh my that is DIVINE!!
Does it normally take that long to have a quilt quilted? I've never sent mine away before but would like to have a professional look on the quilt I'm working on now.

Do you know Wren is my very favorite? She lives really close to me. How did you hook up with Wren? She's done SOOO many quilts of mine. Mention me to her next time. I can't believe the lovely snowflakes. I can't do worth like this Erica. I really can't. I admire you for this. Aqua is on my top favorites right now too.

Erica, you are a good sport. And it looks so beautiful. Definitely the one you should be buried with.

Ah Erica. I love the quilting. I think I really go for the feathery palm frond shapes over stippling any day.
