I've been waiting (sort of) patiently for Judy to finish posting her feather lessons. She's using a long arm, and I'm working on my domestic machine, so I needed to wait for her to get to the diamond sections before I could start. Fortunately, she posted that today! So my quilt went under the needle right away, and the first section is now complete.
I think I'm going to do a meander in the background sections, rather than the feather wreaths Judy showed. I think my son, who already requested this quilt, would prefer that. So, after dinner I'll be back upstairs doing some meandering and hopefully even starting on the green feathers. I'm quilting each section in matching thread, so there will be lots of thread changes in this quilt.
Now that the center is done, I can see that I did not align the backing quite perfectly. The center of the backing star is a couple of inches out of alignment from the front. Shhh. Don't tell Colin - he probably won't notice :)
