    This is beautiful, Jenny! I wish I could go to the show and see this in person. The border looks fascinating, and I love how you did your feather. But it’s a VERY long drive from North Carolina to California! ;-) Enjoy the show tonight!

    Wow, that is gorgeous! I would love to know how you made the border. I love the gradation-it’s very effective.

      Thanks Roxane! I constructed it by first fusing 2 layers of the poly sheer together with Misty Fuse. Then I layed the quilt sandwich on top, satin stitched around it and cut off the excess. I FMQd the border with bubbles, then trimmed the poly sheer at the edge of the bubbles. I love sheers-can you tell?

      Oh, and the gradation is from commercially made fabric-not sure who the maker is but it’s a sateen and comes in a variety of ombre shades.

    Way cool Jenny! I would love to be there in person to show support for you. Washington isn’t as far as North Carolina, but it is still too far.

    Love the way you’ve combined the feathers with the other free motion designs in the piece. Hope the opening and the exhibition are a great success for you and the community.

    beautiful, Jenny. I feel like I’m really seeing a strong point of view and artistic presence in this piece. It’s quite lovely, with the stitching and the fabric coloring working in such harmony.

    beautiful quilt! I love your border treatment – the bubbles had me doing a double take until I read your description.

    Jenny, your work is beautiful. I am going to have to take your class. When do you teach and where?

    Oh Connie I’m not sure you need any quilting instruction! I will be teaching at Angel Qlts in Lincoln on Aug 4 and Sept 7 at Shared Stitches. I keep my calendar up on my site so you can check there also. Saw your fabulous ensemble at State Fair-gorgeous! Love to see your new work.
