Vintage Red

Claudia hasn’t told me the name of her quilt yet, and I’m not sure if she has even named it.  But, I’m calling it Vintage Red.  You will see why when you see the pictures.  I LOVE this shade of red, and I love the white with red pin dot fabric that goes so well with it.  I’ll post a full shot first, so you can see why it looks vintage to me.

And, here’s a shot of that white with red pin-dot fabric that looks white in the above picture: it is what is in the plain blocks.

One of the coolest things that Claudia does is this.  She adds a line of stitching at the end of her seams along the outside edge of her quilt top.  I’ve never seen that done before.  Nor have I ever heard of it, but, let me tell you, it’s genius!  I love the fact that she does this.  it keeps the ends from opening up, especially since those seams get stretched on the long-arm machine’s frame.  Have you ever heard of this being done before?  it’s pretty cool, imho.

Claudia chose feathers and swirls for her quilt, so she got some swirls and she got a ton of feathers on this quilt.  The swirls were done in the sashing and interspersed into the feathers as well, but the bulk of the quilt has feathers galore, for what I call a “bouffant” look.  🙂  There are triangular feathers in each block and twirly swirly feathers in the border.

I hope she likes it!  She hasn’t seen it in person yet.

Does it look “bouffant” to you, too?  Or can you think of another “feathery” word to describe it?
