A Feather Sampler, & a little Halloween

First I want to mention that the Alliance for American Quilts, has it's fundraising quilt auction going on right now on Ebay. The quilt in my header will be part of the auction next week. The 2nd group is on right now, so you should check them out!


I have just finished this Feather Sampler for a class I will be teaching starting in January.  I did a traupunto layer under the feathers to make them stand out more. The second layer of batting is black, to give a little shadow effect to the background. If I were to do it over, I would use a cheaper grade of white fabric, so that the shadow would be more pronounced.

Here are a couple of closer photos. I love doing feathers.
On Halloween we went to a show downtown Anchorage. It was call "Macaberet".
It was an interesting evening of silly strip-tease and some fun music. Our friend Will showed up dressed in his Spartacus outfit.

Our friends Lilly, Pete, John & Mindy, & ourselves just dressed relaxed, & had a good time.

What a fabulous sampler - I particularly like the narrow, spaced out feathers - they are quite different.

What a great sampler-you can see why feathers have been a quilter's choice for centuries; great job on the quilting!
