I used the blocks that I won through the guilds ‘Block of the Month’ program, Sept 2013 to make this quilt. The blocks were put together in this setting, so I would have a lot of open space to work on my machine quilting. The large white borders were added so I could try a different feather designs. I was inspired by LuAnn Kessi feather doodle art posted in her sketch book. The center design reminded me of a swan, so it was named ‘White Swan‘
During the Christmas (2013) break, my daughter and I did landscape quilts for the first time. This is the quilt Emma did. It was her first time doing free motion quilting. She did a great job. Original picture taken in Killarney P.P. by George S.
