    This is my first time quilting feathers, they are a little rough but this was a quilt for my mom and I knew mom would love it no matter how it turned out. I have named the quilt "A Graceful Life" because she is a true woman of grace.

    The feathering sets off the butterflies perfectly! Did you free motion quilt it with a long arm or a regular machine? Or is it hand done. It is beautiful!

    I did on my longarm. The butterfly pattern is from Buggy Barn.
    Thanks for all the compliments. I am my worst critic.
