Default Maypole Dance

The members of my local guild's show team were given a challenge last year. We were told to pick one of the fabrics that was laying on a table without knowing why. I picked one called Nautical Blue. We were challenged to design and make a quilt with that fabric and only solid colors. The quilts will be displayed together in this year's show. There is no judging, it's just for fun.

This is the quilt that I came up with. I thought it looked sorta like a modern maypole so I've named it Maypole Dance. I'm just learning to free-motion quilt, and I wanted to practice feathers. I'm so glad this is finished... it was so repetitive!
