I have always liked feathers quilted on quilts - yet I have never been comfortable enough to quilt them until now.  (And I'm only comfortable now because the machine is in control not me!)

I LOVE how this quilt turned out.  The pattern is a Carpenter Star pattern and the fabrics are Portabella Market by 3 Sisters.  I have had this quilt top sewn together for probably 2 years or so.  I wanted to do a feathery pantograph but was never brave enough to start.

This pattern is by Designs by Deb and is called Simple Feathers.

I love the back!  Maybe better than the front.  I never thought I'd be like that, but look at how things change!  

I've thought about hanging this quilt up on my wall - with the backside up.  Would that be weird?

I'm sure having fun trying out these patterns and loving every minute!  If you need some last minute quilting done for the holidays - please keep me in mind!

It is beautiful. Can you tell me where you bought that pantograph? I am finally trying pantographs sometime this week. Once I get better, I would like to try this one:)
