Kate's Russian Tiles

This is the fifth Russian Tiles quilt I've worked on. See the others by clicking here.

Kate made this beautifully embroidered piece for her daughter, who loves crosses. So Kate asked if I could somehow incorporate crosses into the quilting design. Since this pattern is called "Russian Tiles", I researched the shape of crosses in Russian churches and used that as the cornerpieces. Kate also loved feathers in a couple of the earlier versions of "Russian Tiles" that I quilted, so I used lots of feathers throughout.

I especially love the fabric and threads that Kate used to construct this piece. The gray background fabric has a hint of shimmer to it, which really makes the quilting show up nicely!
