A Brother’s Gift

There are so many different designs for a quilt. Some are fun and frilly, but others make great gifts for a man. A Brother’s Gift is a sampler quilt that is sure to make a fellow happy.

You are drawn into the interesting blocks at first glance, but the fabrics also make an impact. The traditional look and fun piecing is very interesting.

E2E Quilting

A traditional quilt deserves a traditional treatment. What better design than feathers? Using a brown Glide thread called Leather and Adiago Edge to Edge was perfect.

This feather design is one of my favorites. This motif compliments A Brother’s Gift nicely.

Quilt Back

I struggled to get a good image of the back. The quilting does show well but there are these TEENY WEENY stripes (much like ticking). The stripes actually cause an optical illusion in the image. You will see what I mean below.
