a fine feathered finish

dipped, washed and dry now and ready to fly away to dear daughter and her dear hubby....a bit late for the anniversary but will be welcome, no doubt.  don't you just love those feathers in the corner squares?  i certainly do.  in the small squares are amish pumpkin seeds and in the triangles a celtic-type design.  the diamonds and triangles are all quilted 1/4 in from the seam (not the white triangles).  and i simply love that focus fabric.  the third choice was really the charm.  it's so very true, the quilting really makes it a quilt....even if it's a wallhanging.  i'm already busy quilting the next finish, a christmas tablerunner.

  5. Grace, Your hand quilting is simply gorgeous. I like how the quilting design in the side triangle complements the design in the corner squares. A beautiful heirloom for your daughter.
