Last weekend, I finished my feathers quilt top. It is made from all Kona Solids, I think it was "Pacific" that I used for the background, along with a Sunrise bundle. It is my first "all solids" quilt top and I am pretty excited about it. I've always loved other people's solids quilts but have been so hooked on fun designer prints. I totally get the appeal of using only solids and I am sure I will do this again.
I am so happy with how it came out and it was honestly a joy to sew. I had a few issues: completely cutting off the seam allowance of the most time consuming block at the retreat (!) and redoing 45-60 mins of sewing after discovering my son had drastically turned the tension dial on my machine (there will be a lock on the sewing room doors ASAP!). But overall, this project really did not give me a lot of trouble at all and I definitely credit this to a well written pattern.
I plan to back the quilt in this Alexander Henry Countdown fabric. I am psyched about how perfect it is for this quilt. I am also flattered that my four year old son has already claimed the quilt: he's never shown such excitement for any one of my projects before.
This is one of the smallest non-baby quilts I have made, I feel comfortable quilting it on my new-to-me Janome, which I haven't used much for quilting yet. Wish me luck!
