ponderosa pine ~ quilted

hi there ~  it’s more feathers!

this time a new hand-dyed fabric in my studio, dyed by vicki welsh ~ she calls it the “woodlands” gradient.  and i called it ‘mine!’ {at least for the time being!} lol  

i used this quilting opportunity try a different type of meandering feather, quilting continuous ‘branches’ and hopefully… achieving a kind of ‘flowing out’ from one feather spine to another. 

definitely a work in progress, but a fun challenge for quilting…

accented with a dark green razzle dazzle by superior threads.  this spool is #254, named “irish eyes.”  i love the emphasis this thread gives the feathers.

i put a warm golden brown thread of magnifico for the original feather shape, and then added a bright green for the hyper quilting, and deeper, ‘forest green’ for the outside motif quilting:

a pretty batik backing that will be a nice change if someone wanted to flip it over.  and… everything in my etsy shop is 20% until december 1st, with the code GIVINGTHANKS {all in caps}.  

And I pray we all do {forever and ever amen!}

Happy Thanksgiving!
