Do I learn nothing?

I found out last year that these free form feathers need an awful lot of starting and stopping and burying threads. If I'd remembered, I would have designed it differently but I'm committed now and on a time line.

I laid the sample on top to show you how much adding the extra line of quilting outside the feather makes a difference and how quilting down the background makes the feathers stand out.
2 weeks and 2 days ago it was snowing, on Saturday it was in the mid 70ºs and it was hot in the garden. Today the cloud cover is so dense I've had to have the lights on and the rain is so heavy, I can see our little stream bursting it's banks again.
