Hey Bari...here's your quilt!!

Bari is a repeat client of mine who says she is a newer quilter but I would never know it! Bari's piecing is perfection! A favorite design called Deb's Feathers was used as an allover just to give quilt some texture.


My photos are out of order (what else is new right?) The pattern can be found in the Strip Smart Book.

Bari is using up her stash. It is hard to see here but the fabrics chosen and used in this quilt are some older Nancy Halvorsen prints that are absolutely beautiful up close and personal. Well done Bari.

Very simple lines on that quilt, but the color choices make it so striking. And excellent quilting choice to soften all of the angular pieces.

Hmmm, piecing perfection, I think I'm jealous. I love the scrappy look, plus your feathers, make it such a pretty quilt!

Diane said...

Wonderful colors and quilting. I've had this discussion before but when does a "new" quilter become a quilter without the "new"?

Sue said...

Deb's piecing is beautiful! And that quilt design is too. I also love the colors of fabrics Deb chose. Very nice!

Angie said...

Gorgeous quilt, I love the shade in the border. I was thinking of doing a spool pattern, like the idea of using my nice fabrics into something that would show off the prints and colors. Of course beautiful quilting, as always;)
