    This is the quilt I made for the oldest granddaughter and her husband for Christmas. I'm quite happy with this one. I did the quilting myself on my Viking D1. Hard pushing all that fabric through the throat. The backing is an example of how one copes with not enough fabric. I've done something like this on several quilts.

    How big is the feathered star? Can you ever make a simplified that is only 12" block?
