Southern Comfort

The name of this pattern is called “Southern comfort” by Trudie Hughes.

However…Lori rarely leaves a pattern as is……so she reduced the scale so she could use smaller pieces of fabric and added her own border…..she likes big borders to showcase feathers….I must say I agree with her. 🙂IMG_8254

I fell in love with this the minute I pulled it out of the box. In fact I was a bit stumped as to how I was going to quilt it…her other two..I knew right away…but this one??? Sometimes when you really adore something it’s difficult to start..no matter how many quilts you have quilted before….yes it was one of those kinds. But the nice thing is that when you conquer it and you still love it..it inspires you. That’s how I feel about this quilt.IMG_8253

There are quite a few things to look at ..as far as quilting. IMG_8255

I quilted three different designs in the center…the half blocks around the edges got there own design:IMG_8261
