Anna Bella HST Quilt Done + Quilting Video + Giveaway Winner!


Finally after hours of quilting this quilt and spamming photos of it in the instagram (I am amira_littlemushroomcap on IG), the quilt is finally done!

This quilt is a gift for my mother, hence the fabrics was bought to match her taste and home. The fabric line is called Anna Bella by Marcus Fabrics. I posted a blogpost when the fabric arrived here. Blogpost on the progress of the quilt here and here.

I know my mother would certainly love a sampler quilt, so I decided to make the HST sampler quilt from In Color Order's Tutorial.

HST quilt feather quilting 

The quilting was mostly feathers because I wanted to practice feather quilting. I started quilting the blocks, so even though I did have some ugly feathers there, it is not so obvious. Pretty clever ha?

Once I have done all the blocks, I did the sashing. which was ..... totally wrong!
Should have consider quilting from the center towards the outside/border because the quilt backing keeps bulging around in between quilted blocks. It's okay. Lesson learnt.


I was finally confident with my feathers and decide to go for the feather border. I am pretty please with the end results having it was quilted on a regular domestic machine with no stitch regulator.

Here is a video of me quilting it. If you are interested in quilting feathers yourself on a domestic machine, probably you can get a few things from the video. Please pardon my grammar and english - it is not my first language and spontaneously talking is one thing I am not very good at. Huhu.

Sorry - it is my first time doing a video! And NO editing!!! and it is dark - of course, its winter here down under.. AND sorry you have to go through me with the seam ripper part too! Hehe. I am hoping to improve soon so I can share better.
