AMH Feather mini quilt


I made this AMH feather mini as a pay it forward gift for Liz at Shush I'm Quilting.  She expressed such love for the teaser photos I put up on IG (I'm @quiltsnfeathers) that I decided to send it to her.

Measures about 9" x 18"

I quilted in the ditch around the feather and stem, then echo quilted it using Aurifil 12wt in #4093 (teal).  I used 50wt #2000 in the bobbin.  The background fabric is Kona Charcoal and the binding and feather stem are Kona Chestnut.  


The back is some scrap of a feathery batik I've long coveted.

Label from TagsToGo on etsy.

When she signed up for my pay it forward, she mentioned maybe something for her little Princess would be very much appreciated.  Especially if it was pink.  So I made a wide open zipper pouch using some scrap pack pinks I've been collecting.

Side A
Side B--love the girl wearing the glasses!

Inside strawberry sweetness.

    Question: When you quilt with different weight threads do you have any special tricks you use?
