So my UFO # 9 is a Bonnie Hunter Mystery Pattern called Carolina Christmas. I don't know if it is still on her site or not - but here it is - http://www.quiltville.com/
Because it is staying in my house I did some fun floofy quilting on it, although it is a really busy quilt. And most the times busy quilts don't call for real custom quilting - but again - it is mine, and I did the quilting - so I had fun!
Here is the whole quilt again. I wanted the green parts to poof out, so I feathers the inside of the star blocks, and quilted down the white part of the flying geese looking blocks.
Here is a close up of the feather block - it is sort of a squared wreath. And wouldn't you know - the one block I take a close up of has a mistake in it! How rude!!
This is the back of the feather square.
In the pink blocks I started in the center of the 4 and made feather.... question marks... and quilted feathers along the question mark.
Here is it on the back. And yes it is a busy back too. Remember I live in a household of boys.. even boy animals, except my sweet girl dog... so we have to use a lot of girl colors to hang on to something in this house!
Someone asked if I did a fancy border - and nope, I didn't... I just added a lot of texture to it and it fools you when you are looking at it.
I tried to get a side view so you could see the poofy's
The batting I used was Quilters Dream *Dream Puff* It is a very lightweight batting - but it does have a cool puff to it.
I am calling this my design wall today, because sadly enough - this is all that is there - except for the laundry I am supposed to fold.... but I am procrastinating!
To see other design walls go to:
Hope you enjoyed the close ups!
