Rail Fence Set on Point

This is a quilt that I just finished. Mother pieced it and I quilted it. When I started, I wanted to do something different in the dark blue and the light areas of the quilt. I tried doing a continuous curve (cc) design on the dark blue, but doing it with templates was taking forever; and I was not pleased with my freehand stitching. In the end, after sewing all the rows, I decided to unstitch all of the cc and start over with an edge to edge design. What I decided to do was the freehand version of one of my intelligent quilting digital designs, Tilt-a-Whirl which is swirls topped with feathers. It’s one of my favorites and one that I love to stitch.

My blog is about helping other quilters learn to use great tools in their quilting through what I can teach and through finding other bloggers who have good information. In addition, I am a mother and grandmother. Other hobbies include any other stitchery which makes me happy at the moment. I worked in clinical research for most of my career. I am now retired and enjoying every minute.
