March brought us new snow
and the endless freezing temperatures.
But there's always a bright side.
57" x 57"
I brought March in like a lion
with another quilt finished.
The pattern is
from Di Ford's book
19th Century Inspirations
published by Quiltmania.
Her original inspiration is from
Henrietta Smith Glover,
of Huntington Connecticut,
I used bright poison greens and
vibrant turkey red repros along with
a few golds.
The fabrics didn't have busy patterns
so the graphic design of the quilt could be the star.
I opted to have it machine quilted and
went with an overall pattern
that loosely resembled swirling feathers.
I thought it added another element
to balance and soften, just a little,
the sharp angular lines of the blocks.
With a complicated quilt finished,
I feel the need to do something
simple and quick.
My machine is humming already.Until Next Time-
