I dropped in some formal feathers into the negative space between each plate. The back turned out especially beautiful.
I embroidered a label for the quilt that preserved what little is known about the makers of the top and the location it was made. I tend to harp on putting labels on quilts with my clients. So much care is taken to piece a top but many times our quilts never get labels so those who come after us won’t know the simple history of our quilts. I offer embroidered labels for my clients and I’m so glad Eugene wanted me to be sure their family got a label for their quilt!
