Yellow Patty Lucy is Machine Quilted!!

Hello Everyone,
 
Yeah, this gorgeous quilt is now off the machine and let the miles of binding begin!  This is the quilt that had me shaking in terror and worry every time I thought about how I was going to quilt it.  Once I decided what to do, I dug in and the terror vanished stitch by stitch......the worry hung on a little longer.
 
 
Each corner has feathers coming out of a double heart.  I marked a spine for the feathers and then started filling in.  Are all the corners identical and a mirror image?  Not you on your life, but they are close enough.  (Notice I'm not showing you a picture of the whole quilt!)
 

There's a different design in each of the light sashings strips because they were all different sizes.  What to do?  Well, I did something unique in each one.


 The center section had a bit of an issue.  It wanted to poof up way too much.


So I nailed it down by stitching in every other little block.  By the time I finished, I became an expert with these little guys.  As Lisa said, "Quilt it into submission."  So I did.


I'm sure after the wedding this quilt will be hanging at In Between Stitches.  Those of you that are local can view it in person.  I'll take a picture of the whole quilt then.  I will also compile a list of everyone that had a hand in the making of this wedding quilt.  Without them, I wouldn't have had anything this beautiful to quilt!

Many of you expressed concern that I was going to spoil the surprise by posting pictures before Melissa had a chance to see it.  Well, she promised me she wouldn't read my blog for a few days because she doesn't want to spoil the surprise either.  Now we can't wait to give it to the very special bride! 

Soon,
Lynn
