The snow made a nice backdrop for this quilt.  I seemed to plod along on it, but it was worth it.

I try to do something more or different every time with my feathers.  These have a double spine and echoing.  That really gives them some definition.

Today we’re remembering Nelson Mandela, and the difference one person can make in the world.


Snow is falling rapidly here.  The schools are closed, so that makes this a Sew Day, doesn’t it?  Time to work on Christmas gifts.  What have you finished?

I’m linking up with Finish It Up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts.

I'm Valerie, also known as Scooquilt. I am passionate about fabric and quilting. My quilts are colorful and modern, but grounded in traditional blocks. My degrees are in Fine Arts and Education. I'm retired from teaching and trying to quilt daily. Reading, gardening, and cats are also important to me.

  5. Beautiful quilt Valerie! I really love your feather that they’re a little husky :))) If you know what I mean! Those blues are so gorgeous! 🙂

  6. The quilt is great. Love those colors, and your quilting is beautiful. Some people say it isn’t a feather until it’s echoed. =)

  7. Other than a few slight differences in fabrics, I’m making the same quilt for my nephew!! Great minds kind of thing?

  9. Beautiful quilt, Valerie. I love how you quilted it – just right. Lovely feathers. Is that a little oriole in the branch on the left. Stunning photos

  10. LOL – that’s on the stash report post about the oriole. It’s because I see some yellow, black and white in a tiny spot. This is what happens when I’m catching up on posts on a favorite blog.

  11. Came over from Crazy Mom Quilts. Your Chevron quilt is really beautiful. I especially like the double spine and echoed feather design – it is very eye catching!
