American Legacy – Feathered Nest Quilt

American Legacy, by Dani Mogstad, has finally arrived, and we couldn’t be more excited!

Dani’s interpretation of the Americana style is both traditional and innovative, with bold florals, detailed paisleys, and a geometric that looks like miniature quilt blocks! We seriously love EVERYTHING about this collection!

The color palette is loaded with rich shades of red, cream, and blue. Gorgeous!

When I saw Sharon Holland’s FREE Feathered Nest QUILT PATTERN, I knew I had found the perfect marriage partner for this collection, because it dramatically accentuates and contrasts the deep colors against the soft, low volume cream prints.

Here is a closer look at the miniature quilt block print. Isn’t it fabulous?!

I decided to quilt this on my machine using a stippling pattern. This is only my second time trying this design, so there are a few iffy spots, but those will disappear in all of the crinkling that happens when the quilt is washed and dried.

I used a Navy Blue thread for the quilting. It disappears in the darker prints, and provides a fun contrast against the cream.

I backed the quilt with our new Blossom Wide Back fabric in Gray.

I love that this quilt pattern takes traditional half square triangle blocks and arranges them in a fun, modern design — just as American Legacy pairs traditional aesthetic with a modern twist. Pure eye candy, don’t you think? You can download the FREE Feathered Nest Pattern, courtesy of Sharon Holland, HERE.
