Beautiful Chintz Panel


Dorothy Ramage is an amzing sewer who always makes the most beautiful quilts.  This quilt has a wonderful chintz panel that Dorothy appliqued onto the background fabric.  As a quilter this was a challenging centre as is is an asymmetrycal panel.  I wanted the quilting to frame the panel without dominating the quilt, I chose to sew the corner feathers in a freeform manner (the feathers are different sizes and there are curls within the feathers) as it is in keeping with the style of the quilt while drawing the eye into the chintz panel.
