I worked on this feather-inspired quilt off and on over the winter and finally finished it this summer. Why did it take so long? After running out of the quilt front background fabric, I found that it had been discontinued and was no longer available. It took a while to find replacement fabric. Lesson learned: make sure to purchase enough fabric!
I admired Ana Maria Horner’s feather quilt, but wanted a scattered look. I used scraps from other projects to piece the feathers and binding and Lotta Jansdotter Nopp in Sky from the Mormor collection for the blue backing.
