WIP Wed

I made a lot of progress on this quilt yesterday, quilting scads of feathers in all the gray areas.  Started out poorly, with funky feathers I had to rip out, but then I began to feel them, and they took shape for me.  The only trouble with that was that I got so lost in making them that I lost track of the alternating directions I was trying to do.  I don’t think it’s very noticeable, and I love the effect.

Now time to trim and bind. I’m using the darkest floral for binding.

I’m linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.

  1. You are so speeding – looking great!

  2. Lovely quilting! I really like the contrast of the feathers with the straight lines.
