First finish of 2017 and 3rd Feathergirls finish!

Hello everyone,

We as Feathergirls thought we’d start the year as we mean to go on…. with a finish!

You may have been following our progress on our current Feathergirls projects…. our scrapquilts… well, here they are, all finished… !

To the left is my quilt, to the right the quilt of fellow Feathergirl Hubertine, you can find more on her quilt on her blog (click)

The idea for this 3rd Feathergirl quilt was to make a scrap quilt, when we revealed our plans to eachother (click) it turned out Hubertine decided to make her quilt of one pattern and while I originally started with the same idea I found I could not chose which block or pattern to use so decided to use various patterns and found the best way to do this was to place them in rows.

To honor Feathergirl Hubertine and our co-operation as Feathergirls I added a row of the rails pattern of her scrapquilt in mine as well:

Although I tried to ‘make ends meet’  that did not always work out in the end and with the great Gwen Marston (click) in mind I either cut something off when it was too long:

or I added something when it was too short: 

Hey, this is the Feathergirls... our aim is not to be perfect, our aim is to have fun with it all!

This reminds me of many of the antique quilts I have seen on my travels J !
So, not perfect, but I love this quilt, it is colorful, I had such fun making it and it is mine all mine, I thought it up, row by row, so it is one of a kind.

Quilt stats:
Size: 133 x 175 cm / 52” x 69”
Machine pieced, hand quilted
Fabrics and batting 100% cotton

So, after these finishes what is next for the Feathergirls? With a truck load of wips and ufo’s each we decided to put starting another Feathergirl project on hold for now and to focus on finishing some of those first. But that does not mean you will not hear from us…. no way…  watch this space….
