Our guild's challenge was "details," so, besides using all of the fabrics given in the feathers, I quilted in random lines following the feather pattern, in yellow, white and gray. All of the yellow quilted lines stretch out to the end of the feather block.
This kind of quilting was very freeing and relaxing, and I happened to quilt the whole thing and sew on half the binding at our recent Saturday Sewcial!
When you're working basically full time and don't have all that much free time, you know that sometimes a mini quilt can satisfy all of your quilting needs and wishes. And that is what this little quilt has done for me :) Still deciding where to hang it though!
I will definitely be using the feather pattern again - it is so unique and pretty. However, be aware to cut/sew long strips if you are making a lot of feathers, otherwise you'll potentially have a lot of fabric waste and be doing a lot of extra sewing (if you look at the pattern, you'll see what I mean).
Also - I'm a little behind on blogs, so forgive me! I plan to catch up this weekend.
