I especially liked this sparkly, fun polka dot fabric used in the top and bottom panels, providing a bit of glittery accent, since the fairy frost fabric was only used sparsely in this quilt. The soft peachy-pink border fabric was found at a local yard sale, as were the large central panel and the smaller side panels - lucky finds!
This was much fun to make and to quilt, especially the feather practice! Quilting for both fairy quilts was accomplished on my 1942 Singer 15-91 machine, using Aurifil 50 wt in both top and bobbin, with the exception of the small fairy panels shown above, for which I experimented with YLI silk 100 wt. thread.
I arose this morning in time to see a beautiful pale orange full moon setting in the western sky. It appears we're about to have several days' reprieve from the seemingly endless rain and fog this month. In a day or two the garden catalogs will begin arriving in the mail, and we can begin seeing the daylight hours increasing once again! The robins will be back in a week or two to eat all the pyracantha berries next to the front deck. Can spring be far behind?
