Last Section Quilted!

Finally finished the last round of feathers!  These travel between the gold and rust stars, and the blue plaid "chain" area.
Once again, I planned the route that the stem travels by tracing a pencil line on the gray-scale print out of the quilt design.
Machine quilted using my Juki with no frame.
Just the feather quilting took 14 filled bobbins of tan thread!  Now I have to spend some time checking the front and back for stray threads.  I try to do this while I am stitching, but there are always just as many "hidden" on the quilt - especially a busy quilt with a pieced plaid backing!
Now I just have to wait for a wind-free day to get a picture of the whole quilt!  This is a big one - blocks are 12 inches finished, and they are in a 7 x 9 layout.  DH wondered why I wasn't adding a border!


  1. Hope that you get a sunny day soon. The quilting you did is beautiful, thanks for sharing. Hearing that you did it on your home machine inspires me.

  2. Oh, it looks fabulous! Beautifully done!


Thank you. Your comments are important to me.
