When my mum was here, couple month ago, I have cut fabrics for three Cathedral window wall hangings and this is the first one of them.
I love turquoise colour. What I love about it is that it looks great with so many other colours. My favourite one is turquoise/brown/gold, I have also seen gorgeous turquoise/red quilt, and recently I fell in love with Turquoise and Pink. And this hanging is all about this combination. You have seen the design, it’s still the same one, just in different colours.
I was looking for the right kind of quilting design to use. I wanted something not too complicated but looking a bit like the peacock feather and I found a brilliant tutorial by one of my favorite quilting tutors – Angela Walters. I once bought one of her online classes on Craftsy and since then started to follow her blog. And that’s where I found the “Plume Feather” you can see it as a photo tutorial here or as a video tutorial here.
It was just the right kind of design for this hanging and I’m very pleased with it. Thank you Angela for the inspiration! I have used gold thread as there is gold print on the feather fabric as well as on the turquoise one.
Like I said earlier, I have still two more to finish, but they are made from Christmas fabrics so I might wait a little bit with showing those, don’t want to scare you with the C-word too soon. 🙂
