Custom Machine Quilting a Scrappy Quilt by Natalia Bonner

Kathy made this gorgeous quilt, it's actually only the third quilt that she's made, and she did a fantastic job!

Kathy sent me this quilt and asked me to custom machine quilt it for her, she gave me the go-ahead to quilt it however I wanted, but, it is going to be a gift for a special friend so she really wanted the quilting to be special.

I decided to machine quilt feathers in all of the X blocks, I knew that they'd create a beautiful pattern through the quilt and really dress it up a bit.

In each of the patchwork blocks I chose to machine quilt some point to point curves. I love that this pattern softened up those blocks a bit, but didn't take anything away from the the feathers. In the outside border I machine quilted a half feather. I love how this quilt turned out.

Thanks for letting me quilt your beautiful quilt Kathy!
