Finished with machine quilted feathers, first time!

This was a UFO in my closet for some years and is made from a fabric line by Petra Prins

This little crib size quilt is machine quilted with Invisafil, from Wonderfil which I bought at the Wonderfil stand at the AQS quiltshow in Lancaster, PA. I quilted it on my Pfaff Quiltexpression 4.0.
The quilting is difficult to see, but that is okay for me. I like it for practicing and on some quilts I don't want to see much thread.

After some advice from my friend Teri, I started quilting along the squares in straight lines. After all the fabric was secured, I quilted the feathers in the borders.

I used a batting made out of 80% cotton and 20 % polyester. The quilt is already been in the washing machine.

Happy with the result!!!

Very nice! Your feathers look great. You probably realized that they're easier than they seem, once you get the hang of it.
