Quilt Top Notes/Techniques
Striped and flower fabric left over from table centerpieces from Grandma MJ’s 80th birthday (including some chocolate cake stains on some bits). White homespun from Sewco. Other misc fabrics from Spotlight sale table. Used a Victorian Textiles 6.5″ drunkard’s path template. Blocks were coming out very uneven, so ended up trimming down to 6.25″ to make them square.
Used Gutterman 50wt thread in white for ditch quilting and straight line quilting. Used King Tut “Cleopatra’ thread for free motion feathers.
