Sue wanted to honor her father by having a quilt made out of his old suits. Her friend Brenda did a wonderful job piecing a quilt top that was very pleasing–adding a floral print that softened the look. I recently finished quilting it. It’s a large bed sized quilt.
I quilted feathers in the “suit” areas to soften and unify the different wools.
In the floral print, I used straight lines to accent the triangle shape and added some freehand leaves and curls.
In the center, I quilted a feathered wreath.On the other side, it’s easier to see the border design. The solid lime green backing fabric really shows off the quilting.
This is one of the those quilts that was really an honor to quilt. I love how it turned out.
