Mason has been very patient.
His quilt is a take-off on the quilt we do in my String Quilting workshop. Just snowball the set fabric. (Don’t worry, I’ll show you!)
As with some of the other quilts I’ve made recently for children, I’ve substituted fleece for the batting and lining. It makes the quilt super soft and the quilting shows up surprisingly well. I bind it just as if it were three layers. (Click the image to make it larger.)
All the feathers were machine free-motion quilted. I attempted to add to my feather repertoire . It was a great project for experimentation. Mason’s name is quilted in one of the patches. He’s pointing to it below.
I’m just glad I got it finished before he graduated from high school.
