If you are fairly decent at quilting feathers (FMQ, freehand, not with a longarm pattern) would you PLEASE post pics of your feather quilting here? I need some inspiration! And apparently, lots more practice.

Such a yummy sandwich and every time we go "home" I must visit a Maid-Rite restaurant.
If anyone has the recipe for these sandwiches I would love to try

Also, my kitchen table is my sewing table, so...this is on my china cabinet. One last thing, all my kits have been purchased off Ebay, and I have to say I have not been dissappointed in any of them. This one was a tad different as it was a quilt as you go!! Loved it.

If the person who made this quilt has the name of the pattern that would be great.
Thank you so much for your help.
