Something Old, Something Blue

Not quite all of the saying but I don't have anything New at the moment. That will be next week and you'll have to wait. There is no Borrowed either, I can't remember the last time I borrowed.
Instead a couple of Oldies and both Blue, made about 2004. The first is a Blackbird design.


and a photo to show the quilting. The feather continues around the whole scalloped border.



The next quilt is called Love in the Mist



and a picture of the quilting. It was done with a variegated  blue thread and an overall pattern in the centre.



They are from my early quilting days with not a single piece of applique to be seen. How times change.

Blue quilts are always lovely. I need to find a machine quilter than can do feathers like the ones in your border.
