Leo’s Mane Sew Along

Beach Cottage quilt finished

 As well as working for the past week on the quilt
Summer Rental, I've been doing the quilting on
Beach Cottage. It is now finished, and bound, and can
 be added to my list of finishes for the year. WOOHOO!! I have been studying this tutorial for doing an overall feather meander for quite a while, and decided that this was the quilt to try it on. I am so pleased with the results. I absolutely love the effect, especially when combined with these fabrics. They seem to fit each other perfectly.

This is one of the fabrics that I bought earlier this year, intended as quilt backing. I didn't have a specific quilt in mind for it, but it fits this one. I love the way the feathers show up so well on the backing. And now, I'm off to get something to eat, and go back and do some more on Summer Rental.


  1. Cathy your quilting on this is marvelous!!! I'm so in love with it. I may have to send *you* my quilts for longarming! :)

  2. I'm so glad you did the feathers-they look fabulous-perfect on that quilt too.

  3. Love the quilt so much, and the quilting is stunning! You're right, the backing is perfect for it.

  4. That is a very pretty quilt and your feathers look fabulous! Glad my tutorial helped :)

  5. Really gorgeous - very well done!


I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
