I started quilting in 1994.
When did you make it?
I made this quilt in 1996.
What pattern did you use?
I believe it was a pattern in Harriet Hargrave’s Machine Quilting book.
Various plaids and I remember looking at a lot of quilt shops to find just the right mottled light tan! LOL
Have your shown it at any quilt shows or entered it in any contests?
No, I haven’t.
What memories or people does the quilt make you think of?
I originally planned to give this quilt to my brother and his new wife for a wedding gift. I always think of him when I look at this quilt. Because I ended up keeping it for myself!
What do you like best about the quilt?
I love all the machine quilting I did on this quilt. I hand drew the feather, made a stencil and drew it on every single half square triangle. I actually kept track of how long it took to do just the machine quilting and it was 40 hours.
How did you grow as a quilter while making it?
My machine quilting improved tremendously! I truly enjoyed every part of making this quilt.
If you could make this quilt again, what (if anything) would you do differently? I honestly wouldn’t change a thing.
Where is the quilt now?
It sits on the back of my favorite chair. 🙂
