Eleanor Burns & Sue Bouchard wrote " Underground Railroad Sampler" book to which Barbara decided to make the quilt. Barbara chose a range of fabrics by Stoff.
I did a photo of each block.................................(as named in the book)
|birds in the air|
My main threads used throughout were, Madeira & Gunold.
For the sashing & first border I did free hand feathers.
For the outer border I quilted an triangular design, a feather wreath in the four outer corners & filled the background to give a look of prairie points, I also used a touch of black thread, which my assistant ( AKA ~ hubby ) thought I needed to do!
Please click on the following photo to see what I mean.
Batting is a Bamboo/cotton mix.
Then finally I draped the quilt in our apple tree.....just because!
