Star Medallion Quilt

This lovely quilt made by Anne could have been either custom or allover quilted, and we discussed both options.

Anne decided to have allover quilting, and chose my favourite freehand feather plume. I love how the feathers are in keeping with the style and fabrics of the quilt, and how they show up beautifully in the plainer areas around the star.

The result is beautiful, soft and traditional, without the time (and cost) required for a fully custom quilted quilt.
