The Feather Quilt

I had a lot fun making this quilt. I gave it to my son for his 18th birthday.
 The feathers are from Anna Marie Horner's free pattern.
 While I made the feathers with small strips I also made some 3" log cabin blocks.

I didn't have a plan for the quilt, I just started with the feathers and worked rows around. Putting it up on the design wall at each stage was great to choose the layout for the next row.

Make sure to check out the great quilts at Bloggers Quilt Festival at Amy's Creative Side blog.

Celtic Solstice almost done

I am trying to finish my reduced version of Celtic Solstice before Bonnie Hunter starts this years mystery quilt.

I am going to add a solid blue border and then call it done. I love the pattern but I would have chosen my fabrics differently if I had known the finished design. I would love to make this again in a whole new colorway.
