Finished the Feathers

Here it is all finished!
Click to make it bigger to see the quilting in the borders.
It was kind of like drawing with invisible ink to use cream colored thread in the borders. 

Here is a close up of the border

And another close up.

I'm glad to get this one done because, I have quite a few on my shelves to get done.
In addition to my brother's 60th birthday quilt.
The birthday is Tuesday!  YIKES!
The quilt is totally NOT done, but I will be working on it tomorrow at SEAM  (Sewing Eating and A Movie)
Night at Quilters Corner.
My goal is to get the pieced border ready to put on.

Also on my quilting plate is a quilt for my younger niece, Bethany who is newly engaged as of last weekend.
This comes as no surprise since I met her young man, Paul the end of July via Skype when she took him home to meet Dad, (my bro).
I've been trying to come up with a much quicker quilt to make  than the one I'm making for my brother.  This one started out with 1 1/2" strips.  Since this quilt has taken me so long, I have given my quilting buddies strict  instructions to strike me smartly with a large object if I ever start a quilt with 
1 1/2" strips again! 

Happy Quilting!
