My friend Deb's quilt.
She raided her stash and taught herself to applique.
She then taught her daughter. When this quilt is finished they are giving it to her daughter's friend.
A rainbow of color and
a beautiful gift!
The border fabric is a brightly colored batik. Deb thought feathers would be pretty along the border and said "Oh, I've never had feathers on a qult before!" So I gave her a double set.
I love doing double feathers, all kinds of feathers for that matter.

Below are some of my first twirling feathers on a Guild challenge. I made it 2 years ago.
The quilt hangs in my longarm room, but I took it down to get it ready for our quilt show in March. We exhibit our challenges from the past two years.
When I looked at it up close I decided it needed some extra quilting in the areas between the rays....
- I'm not sure what to stitch there. And I think that is why I left it unstitched to begin with (that, and the fact I ran out of time that year.)
What do you think?
More or leave it alone?

Pretty enough to eat. So we did.
A surprise delivery from a friend.
