Default Birds of a feather finished

Phew! This quilt took me a lot longer than I thought it would. The quilt is pretty large. It is laying on queen size bed. I think it measured 96 x 108 or darn close to it. The quilting is finally done and it is off the rack. I posted a sneak peek here:

Tech stuff: Batting is Hobbs 80/20. Thread is Glide on top, magnaglide in bobbin. Quilted on my Innova longarm, no computer. Free hand feathers and ruler work.

Here are two shots of the front:
