Mmmm...I got to quilt ALL DAY!!!

I co-host a small weekend retreat with my good friend Goldie Olson. I always bring something to work on just in case there's some down time. It just so happened that everyone nested in early and didn't need help so I was able to indulge in a full day of quilting...something that never happens any more.

The linen piece I shared below was placed on a fabric called Radiance. It is a Kaufman fabric that is 55% silk and 45% cotton and is absolutely amazing to quilt on. I just had to share how the feathering turned out in the corner I was working on as well as the cathedral window background. I marked the entire quilt with 1/2" gridwork and will be filling it in with various styles of cathedral window and double grid. I used Quilters Dream cotton for my batting, Superior Threads Highlights for the feather work and Bottom Line for the background quilting.
