Oh, that’s not Vanna White. That’s My Hero, showing off the new quilt in his office. (Would you like to buy a vowel?) This is where I get to brag…a lot. Let me show you why.
Let’s just talk about this machine quilting. Linda Hibbert is the amazing woman behind this gorgeous machine quilting. I love feathers and told her to just go for it. And wow, did she ever! She said the quilt just talked to her.
There is a gorgeous feather in the middle of each of those stars. The thing that probably amazes me more than anything is that she stitched in the ditch around every single star, and many other places, and you cannot see it. But it makes the quilt that much more spectacular.
Notice the four pane windows. You can’t see it on the photo, but the doors have doorknobs. And look at the dimension in the green and tan squares.
Linda added so much to the eagle. Look at the feathers in the wings.
I think I gave the details of the quilt before, but I’ll just quickly sum it up. The center house blocks are from the book Fig Tree Quilts: Home by Joanna Figueroa. Once I finished the center section, I added the braids to the sides and the floating stars all the way around. The fabric is an older line from Moda called Sonnet by April Cornell.
I was almost sad to have this quilt leave home, but My Hero’s office is only a couple of miles away. And it just makes his office look even better for our next quilt retreat!
