Myras gorgeous quilt - custom quilting

This is a lovely quilt made by my customer Myra from some gorgeous japanese taupes.  I have custom freehand quilted it for her with feather motifs, feather borders, and some modern fill ins.  The Hobbs wool wadding has made it light and the feathers puff up  while the closer quilting recedes back, I love the contrast in dimension that this creates.    I used a circular ruler to hand guide my machine for the curved lines and to keep the feather centre motifs consistent, and the rest is freehand.

Myra made an excellent job of piecing this quilt, which makes custom quilting so much easier for stitching in the ditch particularly, as all seams were very well pressed.  This makes a big difference for pretty stitching in the ditch.

The last photo shows the back of the quilt..  I love the backs as much as the fronts.
