  1. WOW! It is gorgeous. I think my favorite part is the quilting you did from the big green triangles, small triangels, quarter dresden plates, the HST right out to the piano keys. It all just flows so well. Great quilting design. Oh, and those cool hooking feathers in the star points of the medallion. The back tells the story. Simply stunning.

  2.'ve done a bit of everything I see tulips, ribbon candy and hooked feathers???

    And the back...did I say that I love backs!!!!

  4. OMgosh Shannon, you're killin' me that is so fantastic! Your quilting rocks! And it's amazing how different fabrics change the quilt so much. I'm not usually a fan of 30's fabric but this one is an exception.

  13. That is just gorgeous. It is amazing to see the two quilts with different fabrics.
