Climbing the Mountain Trail

I rearranged the two misplaced errant blocks on the first layout attempt of my Mountain Trail quilt, and reattached the borders.  Then I picked out some threads to use and wound up some bobbins to get going on the machine quilting.
While pin basting the quilt, I decided to feather quilt on the diagonal - the light fabrics will be quilted using a grey thread, and the bright side I'll use the red thread. The red is also for a straight line down the red mountain trail.
Off we go a feathering... so far, so good!

I think the feathers are a great way to quilt this. I need to be able to sit and watch you make them. They just aren't clicking for me.

OHHH Feathers, I love them! Have a great feather day. Chilly outside, time for stitching inside.

Great feathers! Enjoy quilting today. I've been working on some hand quilting.... and noticed my stitches are getting smaller! Yippee.
