Summer Solstice Quilting Close Ups

Hello Everyone,

Many of you may remember my Summer Solstice quilt... A.K.A "I Am Not Afraid of Color".  I finally was able to get it quilted!! I have attached the binding by machine and just need to turn it to the back and hand sew it down.  Then it will officially be complete!! 

But I couldn't wait to share the quilting with you.  Let's take a little tour...


Here is the entire quilt and you can see lots of feathers and tons of quilting.  I used variegated thread from Superior... their Rainbows and Lava.  I switched them to match the fabrics.  I love the sheen that they provide. 


In the NYB sections some loops and stitch in the ditch.


In the Lone Star areas some feathers.


The borders some feathers and beads.


Pardon some of the cat fur on the black batik area.  The cats obviously approve!!


An area with a small feather and more fur... LOL!


Lone Star feathers!



Flame like quilting in the NYB area.



The quilting on the backing fabric.  The backing fabric is a Philip Jacobs fabric and can be found here.

Just gorgeous quilting. I almost always use batiks for my JN patterns, but I may have to give Kaffe a try after seeing several of yours. Again, I wish I lived closer to take a class from, or have you quit a quilt for me.

I always say no quilt is complete without a few cat hairs. Your quilting is gorgeous and really complements the quilt.
