More Machine Quilting

I finished the SITD (stitch in the ditch) quilting and thought that would be enough for the inside quilting.
Then I started feather quilting the borders. I LOVE this kind of free motion quilting and decided to teach a class on it this fall (at Reichard's). I can't get enough of it and seem to be feather quilting every border I've worked on in the last 6 months! I mark the centre of the border with straight pins for the spine and then make the feathers to the left and right of the spine. It goes so quickly and it is FUN!
I am starting to get excited about having another UFO finished!
I will be doing some hand stitching at Triangle's open house tomorrow...come on over and visit...they have great snacks!!

I wish I could say the same thing about freehand quilting feathers. You make it look easy but that I doubt. Your quilt is sure a beauty though!
