I am sooooo excited!! My Rainbow Feathered Star is quilted!!!! I was able to finish it the day before I got sick. Thank goodness too, because I don't think it would be finished now if hadn't finished it then.
As far as the quilting, I am in LOVE with it!!! Let's check it out....
Lots of glorious feathers. I used mostly Superior's Magnifico for the thread. Although, I did switch a couple to a variegated poly. Love the sheen on these thread.
Flame like stitching in the spikes. The quilt as you can see is heavily quilted.
More gorgeous feathers! Swoon!!
Here you can see the flames a little better. I did change the colors out with every spike. I wanted the threads to "blend" with the fabrics. The effect that I wanted was achieved.
Can't say much more, but...
This has got to be my most favorite quilt that I have made.
