Quilting Vintage Part 5 today! Today I get to start quilting in that yummy blue satin! I discovered last time that I can't mark the blue satin, so I used doctor paper to help me stitch the lines. Now for the fun. For the area next to the border I used one of my quilting designs Curl Echoes. It did them very small to add texture to the space. I love the way it came out.

It really tacks down the area and will leave the thin border to shine.
I knew that for the next border I wanted to go back and add more feathers. I moved the safety pins so they were in a line (you can see this above and below) so I knew where the boundary was to stop my feathers. Then I used the existing stitches as the spine. I did rip a few times on this part when my feathers got too large compared to the others. I love how it turned out.
Below you can see the full spray of feathers going up the sides. It was such fun to stitch! I am a firm believer that you can never have too many feathers.
I hope you get to quilt today!
