More meandering feathers

I'm not quite sure how a week went past between blog posts, but never mind! Here's a quilt I quilted last week for Kayscha.

It's a lovely strip quilt with some bold turquoise prints. It was needed rather quickly, which gave me a great excuse to use my favourite open meandering feather. It quilts up fairly quickly freehand. It gives an interesting texture too, without taking away from the piecing and fabrics - or at least that's what I'm telling myself! I know I have a tendency to find something I really like and use it as much as possoble - until something new comes along.

In a surprise move from Australia Post, it managed the journey over 1000km from Adelaide to Sydney in record time - I posted it on Friday by regular parcel post, and Kayscha received it on Monday!

Gorgeous quilting, Emma! You've really perfected that meandering feather design. Now I want to give it a try myself. Thanks for the inspiration.
