The first time around I sewed around my starting corner sewed about 4" across the top, hated the way it looked, ripped it out and started over. The second time around I started in the same place but went to the first row of sashing. . . didn't like it so much either and again ripped it out and started over. I don't know what happened between attempt 2 and 3 but I started liking my final attempt so I stuck with it. And I am proud to say that while the feathers still intimidate me a little, I am making it work and am pleased with how they are turning out. I am quilting this for an aunt who made the top and it just screamed it needed feathers and cross-hatching. . . so I that is what I am doing.

I think it will be a cool reversible quilt when it is done since she wanted a solid cream back on it. And she made two of these quilts, different colors, same layout, so I will get to challenge my creativity a second time around. There will be no feathers on the next one as I want them to look different in the quilting since the pattern of the quilt is the same.

Happy Quilting.
