I participated in SewCalGal's FMQ Challenge last year and this quilt provided an opportunity to practice quilting many of the techniques and motifs learned, especially the Diane Gaudynski-style echoed feathers all around the borders. I had a blast quilting the central panel with all sorts of meandering leaves and flowers, more feathers in the fairy wings, and the scalloped name quilted in the sky section. The quilt is machine pieced and was quilted on my vintage 1942 Singer 15-91 machine, using Aurifil 50 wt. thread in top and bobbin for the majority of the quilt, and YLI silk 100 for the leaves in the smaller fairy panels.
Pattern generally follows one issued with Michael Miller's Flower Fairy and Fairy Frost line
Finished Size is approximately 58 x 75 inches
