Starting a new quilt (just a little one)

First I do do a little warm up piece, to get my hand back in, the tension right for this thicker thread and to try out the colours.

Just as well as the dayglo colours were just too harsh on the white fabric, So this is the first layer of quilting in just slightly toned down colours. There will be another row of single sided feathers outside of these. I hope she'll like it.

  4. I love all your work with feathers. I'm starting on a whole cloth binge - good practice at quilting plus I love the look. Would you mind if I copied some ideas from you?
