I'll warn you now, this post is photo-heavy. I'm proud of the fancy feathers I quilted, so here are some detail photos, and one of the finished quilt. It's now on it's way back across the country to Adds, who pieced the top.
I've left all the images relatively large, so you can click on them to see more detail. It's actually nice and squared, though it doesn't look it in the photo above; I just didn't get very straight on the wall.
A fun heart filler (I came up with several variations as I quilted):
I was quite pleased with how I managed to keep close to the edges, withough getting too close so the quilting is hidden under the binding (well, in most places, it did sneak under a couple of times!).
A different heart filler - this one came straight from Linda Taylor's fancy feathers:
I did this section towards the end, so there are some newer filler patters, and it's definitely neater:
An 'extra' heart:
A hidden ladybird:
I really like the filigree-style filler on the right of this one:
Another hidden surprise:
Even though some of the intricate quilting gets a bit lost in the prints, it gives wonderful texture, and it's fun to look closely and find the detail and surprises.
