Feathered Friends

~"Lynnleigh's Feathered Friends"~
I've been waiting for a sunny day to photograph this latest, completed quilt. It is made from the pattern "Chubby Chicks" and measures 60" X 60".  One more added to the "done" column for this year!
I poured a lot of attention into the quilting on this one.  Using tips and tactics learned in Gina Parris-Perkes' longarm class (Fantabulous Feathers and Fills) at the AQS Quiltweek event in Charlotte this past summer I was able to let the feathers just fly! I am very happy with the results.
I searched all over a few years back to find enough of this backing fabric, it's the perfect complement to the theme and was well worth the effort. This quilt is a gift for our youngest granddaughter.
Life is Good!
