Description

This quilt is made with fabrics from Anna Maria Horner's line, Field Study, Essex Yarn Dyed Linen in Flax and Kona Navy.  The pattern is from Alison at Cluck Cluck Sew and is called Scout.  I modified it slightly by changing the direction of the "feathers", alternating the orientation rather than placing them all the same way as in the pattern.  I pieced it by machine and quilted by hand using Aurifil in 12 wt in multiple colours.  The backing is voile, from Valori Wells line Cocoon.  

This is the lightest, softest, snuggliest quilt I've ever had to give away!   It is a wedding present for my husband's close friend.  As I have never met his bride, I used their wedding invite as inspiration!  It was decorated with peacock feathers in teal and blue :)  Oh, and finished dimensions are 61" by 71".

Thank you Terrysim ! I was surprised how quickly the hand quilting went actually! I think I did a good job, hopefully it doesn't just fall apart when they receive it, haha!

Very pretty. The fabrics are fascinating. I enjoyed all the views you posted. I felt like I was actually there seeing it first hand. Lucky couple to be getting this.

Love the quilt and the "posed" photos outside. I've yet to get into the outdoor staging photos of quilts--always fear getting them stained.
