Princess Feather Quilting

I designed the quilting to fit the fabric. Feathers won't show on the dark floral but were added anyway. The solid areas seemed to call for a wreath but not more feathers so I drew a Jacobean-style leaf with stems that extend to all corners of the solids.

Here's the lovely lavender sateen cotton for the back. Since it had such a wonderful shimmer I used rayon thread too, changing colors frequently.
It was fun to link this up with Leah Day's FMQ Friday. Technology makes it so easy to see what others are doing and share ideas and results. Thanks.
