Snake River

I love this Snake River Log Cabin quilt.  It's from Judy Martin’s Log Cabin Quilt Book.  The fabrics are orientals with neutrals.  Pieced by Jodie Nidey.   
 All the quilting was done freehand.  Feathers are quilted in the light areas.  Lots of SID around the red squares, dark fabrics and in the borders.
 Lines make a nice contrast to the curvy feathers and allow some relief, so everything isn't quilted down. 
 The center has a curvy feather.
 Here's a corner.
 A close up - SID  makes the red and the border fabrics pop.  Double lines to mimic the lines I quiltd in the body of the quilt.

What a beautiful quilt. I love the detailed photos. I think the oriental fabrics add a real depth of texture to the pattern. Very nice job!
