This gorgeous quilt belongs to Jan. It is Esther Aliu’s design - In The Pink. You can view pictures of Esther’s version of the quilt here.
Jan used similar fabrics, and gave me artistic freedom with the quilting. I wanted to quilt it heavily like Esther did with hers, but at the same time, I wanted it to be unique.
I wanted the quilting to be a feature on the floral fabric border because, to me, this border framed the centre appliqué. So I decided to do a combination of curved cross hatching and feathers. I think it looks really elegant.
The background quilting of combining pebbles, swirls and peacock feathers around the appliqué was inspired by Judi at Green Fairy Quilts on a quilt she posted in December last year.
