My husband's second cousin pieced this quilt. It is only the second quilt she has made and the first that she did all on her own. And she did a great job. I mean, look at the difficulty factor of the pattern!
The quilt came to me via Texas with a prepackaged roll of Fairfield's poly-fil Quilters 80/20 Batting. At first my impression was that the batting was going to be a little on the thin side -- I mean it fit in a fairly small package! Will it fair okay with the tugging and handling of quilting a quilt so big, 99 x 89 inches, on the longarm? But after a fluff up in the dryer to remove the creases, I came realize this batting is very similar in weight, feel, and loft to Hobbs 80/20 and was every bit as stable. And quilted up exactly like Hobbs 80/20, which is one of my favorite batts that has a little loft.
We went with a variegated Superior Rainbows thread that matched the colors in the quilt top. It turned out pretty with the Two-Fold Feathers panto. The quilt colors are every bit as vibrant in person as the pictures show them to be! It's a stunner :)
Thanks for letting me quilt your quilt, Lindsey! I hope you like it!
