Feathers on a Friday

"Feathers Quilt" by Anna Maria Horner

Back in September I sent all the girls withing the Cherish Circle of Do Good Stitches little parcels with the back ground fabric for my October blocks. Since then I have been getting little surprises in my mail box then today the last ones arrived.  I was so hoping that what I saw in my head would translate.
Here is the mini mosaic I posted to Flickr for the girls.
I provided no other guidance for colours etc 
as I wanted each of them to make their own unique feathers.

after some pressing and trimming I had this .......

plus I have two blocks left for the back.
I LOVE every block and all together as a top ...... I am in LOVE

This photo might be a little deceiving as to the size ..... it is 72" Square

I think that all the ladies have out done themselves. Some ladies have been cursing me whilst making their blocks but just look. They are stunning and now what I saw in my head I see before me :o)


Now for the quilting.  My limit/ability stops and starts at straight lines (well I like to pretend they are straight!) so do I do random or just vertical?

This pattern is available as a free download  HERE  if you are interested.

Thank you "Cherish" Ladies.
I'm off to ponder the back :o)

hugs Sharon
