I didn't make this quilt top but . .

. . . I did quilt it. I got this quilt from a quilting shop in NZ called Grandmother's Garden about 3 years ago in their birthday sale. I think it must have been rejected class sample because it came already pin basted with the binding sewn on and a tiny wee bit of hand quilting. It has been sitting around my place for a while, so I decided to take it with me to Symposium to quilt during my UFO class.

I had the use of the Bernina stitch regulator. I marked the feather wreaths with a stencil and a blue washout pen and then free-motioned them. Not bad for my first feather wreaths. The colour in the second photo is closer to real life.

So another one bites the dust and my total of quilts "finished" this year is up to 3.

This is a delightful stack'n whack. I like how the corner blocks and binding are of the same theme fabric. I can't believe it was a reject. Beautiful choice and job of quilting.

Your feathers are really great! Congratulations on your first. Based on this wonderful example you can do more quilting, more UFOs, more WIPs, etc.

Lovely quilt, and your quilting looks great, I'd never have suspected that it was your first time with the feathered stars!

Isn't the BSR amazing? I love it, too! Your feathered wreaths make it look like you've been quilting like as a pro for years! Great job, wonderful quilt!
