This beautiful quilt is finished. The colors in this quilt go perfectly in my house and I absolutely LOVE it. The gal who pieced this, Sharon, did a great job. All the points match and the colors are wonderful. She spent a lot of time on this and wanted something special for it, so I gave it feathers in a half-circle and beadboard in the border, feather vines in the inner border, feathers in the center medallion, SID the whole thing, and pebbled the background fabric in the center and behind the star blocks and one of the inner borders. I love the texture of this quilt.

I used a Quilters Dream wool batting, Madeira Monolon clear (for the SID and red fabric), Filtec Premo Soft in light olive on the green fabric and in the bobbin, and Superior tan Bottom Line for the pebbling (in top and bottom). I used a circle ruler to outline the circles in the border and the spine of the feather in the inner border, and a straight ruler for the SID. The rest was freehand.

I tried taking pictures, but I'm still struggling with my camera (time to upgrade to a new one). Here are the best 4 out of 20 pics I took!
