feathers...




it's funny to think this time last week i was tearing my hair out over this quilt. for 2 days. then i woke up the following day, and a feeling of calm came over me and i stitched like a mad woman and a few hours later the top was finished. it was definitely a hard fought battle though, this quilt...mum and i had to unpick half a quilt's worth of quilting over the weekend, i'm afraid to say i wasn't keen on what mum had done (yes, i did feel like a total cow...) but then all of a sudden, it was finished and bound and looking *fantastic* i'm not sure what i can do to thank mum for all this amazing work...other that make her proud of me at houston! x

I'm such a fan of your new fabric line! I'm wondering if there is a pattern for your Feathers quilt. I love it and have been searching for it but haven't been able to find it. Can you point me in the right direction? Thanks!
