Birds of a Feather Challenge Quilt 2016

Me, Donna, Valerie and Barb with our challenge quilt Feb 2016

Every year since 2013 I have met my good friends Donna and Barb at the Birds of a Feather Longarm Event hosted by Valerie Schlake of The Longarm Network. In 2016 as part of a challenge we designed this friendship block quilt via a group text, Donna embroidered the center design, Barb pieced the quilt and I wrapped it up with some free motion quilting and ruler work using my favorite BFF ruler from the Quilted Pineapple. It was a lot of fun to work on together. Afterwards I made two Bionic Gear Bags inspired by the quilt for Donna and Barb.

Quilt designed by Barb Burdette, Donna Hutto and Tracy Bell. Quilted with 2 layers of batting with the top layer of wool. Magnifico and Glide thread.
Embroidery design was purchased from Urban Threads.
Quilted January 2016
