The Quilt on My Bed

I don't think I have posted this quilt which I made in 1989. "Feather Fenced Flowers" is its name and it is machine appliqued (satin stitch) and hand quilted. The background is a satiny finished fabric called Polished Apple that was popular back then, and it was wonderful to quilt. This quilt has a "pillow tuck" which is a wide area over the nine blocks and under the design on top of the pillows. I would not put one of those on a quilt anymore since it's so pretty to have lots of pillows and therefore no need to tuck the quilt under. The baby clothes hanging from the shelf belonged to my husband - and the little shoes, book and baby dish (partially hidden) were also his. (Click to enlarge)
