All the rest of the background on this quilt is filled with the swirly pattern I showed the other day. But a few nights ago, I felt like feathering this space. So I did.
Design-wise, it wasn't the most sensible choice; consistency would have been smart. But I quilt because I enjoy it, and what I decided I'd enjoy most was feathering, so that's what I did. And it works, well enough. This quilt is headed for a magazine to showcase the new fabrics, and will ultimately be a baby quilt. It's not destined to be shown - not by a long shot! So I'm convinced my choice was the right one, one way or another.
