Miss Jackie's quilt

Every year, I  buy  thank my daughter's teacher by making her a quilt. Every year I ask her to learn what are the teacher's favorite colors.

This year the answer was Red, white and black......easy peachy. Well easy if I didn't wait until almost the last week of school to start this quilt :)

I used a white on white fabric, some nice beige and a cute farm print. For the punch I used a dark wine red as the border and appliqué Red EPP stars as a extra punch and interest. Where the quilt has simplicity in the piecing, I decided to quilt feathers with a swirl and pebbles filling.

Edit : Missing the binding and it is so cloudy outside I was not able to take a decent picture but I wanted to show the whole quilt. I will try to get a better (finished) picture as soon as the sun is out. (and it is nowhere as crooked at it look on this picture!!!)

  1. It's like an unwritten quilter rule: Start project right before the deadline :) Love the punch of color that beautiful red star adds and those feathers...yummy! I'm sure Miss Jackie will love her quilt.

  3. I do the same-think that I have all kinds of time and then the deadline sneaks up on me. I've tried changing but I guess it's in my nature so I should just go with it. This quilt turned out lovely. I'm sure she will love it and I bet she knows it's coming as teachers talk.
