Jody's Poinsettia Trellis



We had a mystery class at the local quilt shop. Jody taught the class. Mystery classes are always so much fun. Everybody brings a little treat and of course, chocolate is always welcome. Jody makes the classes special by designing different ways to preset the clues. This time, the clues were tail feathers on a paper turkey.

The quilt turned out to be a trellis quilt. Jody used two different poinsettia fabrics. The back is alight green wide back. The borders are deep red. I used Signature cotton scarlet thread top and bobbin for the red borders. This was my first time trying Jodi Robinson feathers. I was happy with the way they turned out. The center of the quilt was quilted with Signature cotton Limey green thread top and bobbin.

My life has changed in the last couple of years - some bumps, I retired from quilting, and then I moved to Texas. I'm anxious to see what new adventures await me in the next phase of my life.
