    Feather bed quilt finished!

    I'm very proud of myself... I finished this quilt on Friday. It's the Christmas gift a godmother is giving to her little 2 years old niece who will get a "big girl" bed. It was my second custom order and I was a bit nervous about the result, being the biggest one I have never made. Also, I pick all by myself the 30 differents fabric I used for making the feather string. My customer loves it and me too... I'll have to make one for myself :-) This pattern (Feather bed by Anna Maria Horner) is perfect for emptying scraps bins. I made the pebble quilting with my beloved HQ 16. Thanks for looking!

    Feathertabulous quilt! I really like this and thank you for sharing the pattern. I like how you quilted it, the feathers just pop with that wonderful pebbling all around.

    Great quilt. The design is so interesting and the feathers pretty. Your quilting is wonderful for this project. I have to tell you, calling it a feather bed quilt threw me off from what I expected- a duvet type quilt to mimic antique feather bed covers.

    pretty neat -- they remind me of neckties -- thin at one end & thick at the other -- hmmm, couldn't you use neckties & put a thin piece of black fabric down the center??? -- that would be different....
