    Gorgeous, gorgeous!!! I can't give any advice on how I would do it, because I think I would be in the same situation. I do have a site bookmarked that sells quilting stencils and maybe by looking at these something would just pop out and say ME ME!!!! I know I sit and look at all my quilt quilting books and then I still wonder in a daze.

    Good Luck!!

    And it is just beautiful.

    Yes, curved feathers that echo/follow the curved lines. Then arches inside the triangles to soften the lines. It's truly a wonderful work!!

    When that picture popped up after clicking on this thread the words "Wow, what a fantastic quilt!!" came out of my mouth out loud! I love to paper piece, but have not checked out Karen Stone. Guess where I'm going now!

    That is absolutely gorgeous. I am following this thread closely because to me the three worst words in the world are "quilt as desired". I like the idea of feathers in the gray areas, or even a close stiple to really make all the points pop.

    I think I will finally load this quilt on Monday and go from there(we're going Archery 3D shooting this weekend and will practice drawing many feathers.I like all the ideas and truly do love feathers.
    Yes, I will post the final quilted quilt when I get it done.
    You all are amazing!

    Very visibly stunning quilt. Your color choices are outstanding. You have done a wonderful job. If you get it finished and entered let us know how you did ok? If I were the judge I'd call it a winner!!!!

    Your quilt is amazing. I sat here and stared for 5 minutes. Amazing.

    How ever you quilt it, it will only add to the beauty of your quilt.

    Too many choices. Why don't you just send it to me and let me worry about it.

    I think feathers would be a nice contrast to the points.

    I think if I was to piece something that fantastic, I'd turn Green Fairy loose on it!! :lol:

    I've no suggestions, other than feathers don't even seem adequate for what you've done here...and I *love* feathers!! :lol:

It is a pattern from Karen Stone Paperpiecing called McCommas Beauty.
    wow! Your quilt is gorgeous and your workmanship impecable! Your did an awesome job. I have no clue how you can get this quilted to enter in 3 weeks time. Good luck. Please update us on what you do and how it does.

    WOW!!! Stunning quilt!! You have done an amazing job on putting that one together. I think the feathers will look wonderful on it, of course, I'm a huge feather fan. I really can't wait to see it finished, I just know it will win the show...its lovely!

    Your quilt is breath taking! I would stitch in ditch, And I would do feathers. I think if quilt pattern is straight lined and pointed, curved quilting makes the quilt pop. Good luck in your show.

    You have set my goal even higher than I expected I could ever do. I believe that is the moes beautiful piece of art I have ever seen. Please show us the finished project - it is certainly a winner.
