an attempt at feathers

Time for Sew n' Tell...

Some of you may have already seen this quilt. It is my
I had the top finished so long ago...
And FINALLY I quilted it!  It took me so long to quilt because I did not know what design to use.
So I went with the  feather design. I think it turned out okay.  I just really wish I would have used a thicker batting. I am still in search of the perfect batting. I want something a tad more thicker than warm n natural.This quilt does have a lot of mistakes  because it was one of my first quilts. The whites i used were really cheap fabric so you can actually see thru it to the backing fabric!! If I would have used thicker batting that would not have happened plus it would have hid the squares not matching up on the front....but you quilt and you learn!

Now I need to get working on the binding. I have not decided what fabric to use for it yet but next week I will post the binding and let you see the back!
Thank you for looking!  And I have to mention that AMY Lou Who's blog party is my favorite! Click on the link to see all the other Sew & Tells!


  1. It looks great! Love the feathers! Have you thought about using wool batting? I have made one quilt with wool. It has a bit higher loft than cotton or bamboo. You can machine wash it but you can't dry it in the machine. It's lovely and warm in the winter.

  2. I love your quilt!! :o) Is this a particular pattern or did you create it yourself? I just love the stars and 9 patches. :o)
    Have a great day.
