I finally finished up Kate's quilt. 
Mom is going to put the binding on for me - Thanks Mom!
The quilt has many feathers on it and in the border I decided to do cross hatching.

The next quilt on the frame

I made this quilt a few years ago for my daughter. 
I knew that I wanted to quilt feathers on it, but I haven't felt confident enough to give it a go. 
So now is the time! 
It's going to be the next quilt on the frame.

Whole cloth feathers

I took a class in Grand Rapids, MI in Aug with Sue Nickels. 
When I got home, I made this project. 
I used variegated Aurifil thread on a silk/cotton blend fabric. 
I made this on my domestic Pfaff machine.

A10 in progress

It's 11:30 pm and I am working on A10. 
I think it is time to call it quits for the night before I make a silly mistake. 
I'll be dreaming of the block finishing flat...
