This is Sandra’s County Fair quilt and the pattern is by Fig Tree & Co. The fabrics are Moda Farmhouse also by Fig Tree & Co. Sandra asked for custom quilting and I know I can never over quilt a quilt for Sandra as she loves to wash them right away to see the wonderful texture in the quilting.
This quilt has four borders so I quilted simple feathers in the outer border, then swirls, loops and a feather curl in the inner most border. The sashing is all stitched in the ditch and I added CCs in the Nine Patches and loops in the white sashing. I left the black with white polka dot fabric unquilted as that fabric needs to stand on its own! I stitched in the ditch around the flower blocks and added feathers in each petal. Then I added a feather motif in the white triangle background and CC’d the corners to tie in with the CCs in the Nine Patches.
I used white So Fine thread on top and white Bottom Line on the back, with Quilters Dream Blend for batting.
The backing is a white on white tiny grid print and shows off the quilting beautifully!
Since the quilt is called County Fair I had to take it to the Emo Fairgrounds to take a few pictures.
