However, If I were quiting again, I'd just mirror the triangular feathers in the alternate squares, rather than do the weird two-size fleur-de-lis type things I ended up with.
I actually quilted the narrow border after binding it. I wanted to see how it would look unquilted ( it looked unfinished!) but I also felt that I risked distorting the border and therefore the quilt shape if I quilted it first.
It's been finished a while, waiting for time, suitable weather, and the new camera; this was the last quilt of 2009.
