This is Rae’s Vintage Kansas City Star quilt which is a block of the month project from the Fat Quarter shop. You can buy this BOM project here. Rae’s only request was that there be no feathers in the outer border so I did a Bead Board design which compliments the feather motif in the light sashing areas. I made a stencil with a simple loop design to use in the corner stone blocks and framed it with a 1/4” line to match the bead board. Each block is quilted with a different design using feathers, CC, straight lines, etc. I stippled all the light background fabrics to compliment the texture of the feathers in the sashing.
It’s hard to capture the quilting on the back in a picture but it really shows up nicely in person!
If you look closely you can see a large pile of snow on the ice, my son and I are building a quinzee. If you don’t know what a quinzee is check out this link. We still have to hollow out the inside this weekend.
