    I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this quilt. The pattern, The fabrics and the way in which they shoecase eachother well.

    A few weeks ago I don't think I would have put this type of feather on this type of quilt until I saw one.....I wanted to give it some dimension of course so I kept the rest of the designs simple. I wanted those batiks to look like gemstones ..to just dazzle! So other than the feathers most of my quilting in in the black areas.

    I used black warm and natural batting.

    I quilted this freehand on my INNOVA.

    Thanks for looking.

    I really like this quilt too and it gives me some great ideas for my growing batik stash.

    I love the "surpirse" secondary pattern your continuous curves produced on the back.

    A gorgeous batik quilt, love how the colors pop. Then your placement of feathers is wonderful. I love to see what you've done because you are so creative with your quilting.

    Nope..I only load it once.

    It is a way of kind of basting the quilts as I go..works great.

    I have made that exact quilt!! And it looks a lot like yours. I have never quilted it because I did'nt think I could do it FMQ and do it justice. It was great to see how you quilted it,but it does look hard to me. It is a big quilt.
