Quilting Feathers

It's late at night, but I just had to share. After we got home from Sharon and Jon's tonite, I was itching to get to some quilting.

I've done the outline quilting for the faux applique blocks, meandered about in the main part of the quilt, and now I'm working around the border.

I really love free-motion quilted feathers, and I'm really getting the hang of them now. Working around corners still gives me a few headaches, but with practice, I'm sure I'll grow confident with them too.

Faux applique? Does that mean it's printed?

Tazzie, your quilting is always wonderful. I have been meaning to ask you...what type of machine do you use to quilt with?

I notice (it appears) that you are quilting the feathers AWAY from you? Can you go both toward you and away from you, or do you prefer one direction over the other? They look very good. I can't see what I'm dong then sewing AWAY from me.

It looks great from where I'm sitting! :-)
