Once again Suzet Pont has worked her long arm magic and really made this quilt special. She has quilted simple curly feathers on each side of the quill in the feathers themselves, and a swirly “cake frosting” meander in the white background. The simple outline of the feathers adds emphasis and really makes them pop.

I bound it in the same Oakshott brown that I used for the quills.

The backing is a map of Paris by 3 Sisters at Moda.

This sophisticated lap quilt will now reside in the formal lounge where I think it will sit nicely with the antique Chinese furniture.
