Feather quilt

So I was bubbling about making a quilt with feather design.

Here is what I made.

While I was drawing the feather, the idea of zentangle for the quilting hovered over me. I never learned zentangle, just looking at them through Pinterest so you can call it just doodling quilting.

I should make the stem much longer, quilting on the feather should be more bold and poke out the applique line and I want make it much bigger!

Despite saying above all, I do like this quilt. It’s a small wall hanging, 18.5″ by 13″.

This story will continue 🙂
