I've been collecting photos for the Antebellum Album book (to be published in 2020) and Pat sent snapshots of her finished top and quilting progress.
She was one of the model makers and did such a memorable job, adding a little machine applique and choosing fabrics so well.
Her quilting is just as wonderful.
Love the recurring butterfly theme.
Here's what Pat says:
"I do all my own quilting on a home Bernina without a stitch regulator... strictly old school. There are many feathers and wreaths in the block backgrounds and borders. I'm using blue violet AND red- violet threads on the border feather motifs. I love pebbles and other heavy coverage quilting motifs. The problem is seeing them against my fabric choices."
Here's the marking and feathers in the border with the pebbles.
I can see it here and the photographers at the publisher C&T
will do a great job of highlighting it.
