Wendy's Sampler Quilt

I've recently quilted this bed size sampler quilt for Wendy.  It's all in lovely calm shades and is a very restful sort of quilt to look at.  While her husband had a cup of coffee and read his book, Wendy and I spent a long time deciding properly what to quilt everywhere and ultimately plumped for feathers in the two outer borders, a feather-swirl in the sashing and a variety of feather patterns in the blocks.

Lots of block photos coming up!


I was really pleased with how it turned out.  I still love the moment when the quilting's all finished, the ends of all the (hundreds in this quilt!) of thread ends are knotted and sewn in, the edges are neatly trimmed and I can spread the quilt out and have a proper look at it.  Wendy's quilt certainly deserved a second look!


  1. Wow its stunning! love the birdy applique, getting v excited as birmingham draws nearer!

  2. Absolutely gorgeous!! Its looks amazing, Wendy and Joanne.
