{challenge}

this is my stlmqg challenge quilt. we were given Riley Blake fabric to use. our guild's guidelines were that it had to be a finished quilt bigger than 24" on all sides. i've wanted to try out the feathers quilt block/pattern. i was also inspired by this target mug {my daily favorite mug}. i'm pleased with how it came out and am excited about the possibilities this block has in all sorts of different projects.
i opted for some straight line quilting in clumps. i like the opposing texture it gives the quilt.
 you can really see the texture the quilting gives on the back.

  2. Oh my gosh, I saw this quilt on flickr and immediately thought of that Target mug (I use mine almost daily too!). I've wanted to make a quilt based on that mug since I got it, but have never gotten around to it. Yours is beautiful! Love the texture of the straight lines.
