NINE OF HEARTS QUILT

Can you believe this is Feb. 2nd already? Diane Gaudinsky started Feb. with feathers over at SewCalGal FMQ challenge. I love feathers but I don.t often make a quilt that looks attractive using such a soft touch. This wall hanging is 10 x 12 inches. Just big enough to put petite feathers between the heart blocks. No matter what the size, feathers are always impressive. If you haven't read her tutorial check it out. She gives lots of great information.

lovely little quilt - the feathers are perfect. This is inspiring me to make something similar and use some small feathers.

I'm still scared of feathers. I wonder what they ever did to me?

Oh, I love your quilt.
I have not had a chance to read Diane's tutorial yet but plan to next week. Still need more practice.

I tried your leaves with the little swirl in them and for some reason I kept getting little nests on the back side.
Any insight as to why that would happen? thanks for your help.
