Tired of seeing Dad’s quilt yet? I might be . . ask me this time on Tuesday! It’s off the longarm, threads are trimmed.
The binding is on; all that’s left to be done is get the hand work done and wash and dry it before I leave on Wednesday.
I went with green binding because I thought I was getting too much red in there. There are more feathers on this quilt than there are in that box in my downstairs garage! 🙂
Meandering is not my favorite type fill but anything too terribly dense, like McTavishing, would have made the quilt a bit stiff so I just did meandering around the background in the blocks.
But I stuck feathers in every nook and cranny I could find! Notice the little tiny feathers in the outer sashing. Aren’t they cute?
I hope to get a better picture of the backing because the quilting shows up really nice on the back side.
It’s been a long time in getting to this point but I hope Dad loves it!
Its beautiful and REALLY–ITS BEAUTIFUL! Your Dad will love it to death. You amazing quilter, you!!!! Hugs, Bobbie

Vicki H. says
I am a big fan of this quilt. I love all the feathers too. I haven’t tried to do feathers freehand. I have only used a template and handquilted. I loved it but it was so time consuming. Fab!
Is that your own design?
Your dad will love the quilt! It is beautiful.
That quilt is absolutely exquisite, Judy. I’m sure he will absolutely love it.
Carol Harper says

I love everything about this quilt. From the blocks, to the setting, from the colors to the abundance of feathers in every little nook and cranny.
Absolutely wonderful. You are truly gifted.
How could anyone get tired of looking at that quilt. It’s wonderful. I especially like the sashing design with the squares and x’s – just that extra little touch that makes it all so stunning.
