Finished 25 March 2018
This quilt came to me while watching
video tutorials from the Missouri Star quilt company. Their tutorial makes the classic Quatrefoil quilt look easy. Of course, I had to complicate matters by fussy-cutting the center blocks, and give it a curved border.
I used an antique-looking beige toile print for the background, giving the whole quilt a look of the old Dutch or French still-life paintings.
The feathered motifs were traced from a book using a light-box. The scrolling inner border was based on one of
Cindy Needham's stencils from her borders collection, while the bead-board fill in the outer border was from one of her background stencils.
Altogether, while it's not a particularly large quilt, being 72" square, it came out rather nice.
