Here I tried to do the same but different. I loved the feathers I did on Vickies' quilt so much but I didn't want to do exactly the same thing again; so I did feather wreaths in the cornerstone blocks and a slightly different version in the center row of baskets. I used so fine thread in beige and a chocolate brown thread in the border. I did a 1/4" outline in the sawtooth border and outlined the blocks.

Although this looks kind of unrelated it really is a pale shade of turquoise; the same pale turquoise that is in the piecing.
This was a mystery quilt done by a customer. WOW. I loved the colors and the pattern. I was almost scared to quilt it. But it turned out great. I love doing feathers and the curling feather done all over turned out just right for this quilt.

The Churn Dash was an exchange done in January 1990. Setting it with no sashing created a few bonus stars. I used a wool batt; Hobb's and quilted an all-over feather with an occasional ribbon. Beige So Fine thread. I decided to do 1/2 inch binding and really like the width.

I was asked to do Vicki's Bountiful Baskets. I did free hand feathers in each 10 inch block. I used Hobb's 80/20 for the batting and So Fine beige thread #404. Vicki did not want the quilting to be the star, it isn't. Lighting the quilt so the quilting showed was a bit tricky after dark; knowing it would be rainy the next day and then the quilt would be back in Vicki's hands.
