Purple Feather

This video shows a wonderful quilt that represents a style of quilting I really like. I discovered it this week. It is a crazy quilt that has less to do with combining luxurious fabrics and more to do with combining wonderful embroidery and motifs.  I am not sure if this style has a name. Collage quilt might work, but there are many types of collage quilts.

This video is like a stitch-with-me.  A relaxing way to pass the time. At the beginning of the video, she shows what looks like a finished quilt, and during this hour long video, she shows you more things you can add to the quilt. Even though she does some of the work off camera, spoiler alert, she is not finished at the end of the video. There are other, previous, videos if you want to see more progress on the quilt.

If you don't have time to watch the whole thing, just seeing a few minutes at the beginning and a few at the end will give you an idea of its wonderfulness.

My quote quilt will not have as much wonderfulness as hers does, because I want to be done by the end of the year, and I have other house stuff I have added to my chore list.

I did add a feather to the quote quilt this week. Does it look like a feather?  I am debating whether I should take out the embroidery and add sharper Vs with thinner thread. It will stay for now and I see if it still bothers me next week.


2020:  Weeks 36 of 15 Minutes to Stitch


The week was a little bit cooler, which made our daily walk easier, and to be motivated to get other things done. I spent this week trying to whittle down the list of household chores. I also stitched the feather on the quote quilt.

15 minute days this week -- 7 out of 7

Shasta you are right, her embroidery quilt is amazing, but I didn’t have the patience to watch the video. What a lot of work! I do love yours and enjoy following you through your process. Your feather could also be a beautiful leaf..

Well, if that style did have a name I would call it "fun". I love this kind of quilt too as it holds so many memories and oh so much history.

It definitely looks like a feather. Love the embroidered flowers. Congrats on all the stitching time last week. Hope this week is at least as good.

It looks like a feather! Deeper Vs might make it look like a leaf... in green though.
