Feathers with a twist.....

This lovely modern quilt was made by my good customer Elaine, and was beautifully pieced, and was lovely to work with.  Elaine wanted something a little different than an allover design, so I had some fun custom quilting some lovely feathers with stems,  twirls, and scallops, which I am now affectionately calling "faux ric rac" up the outsides of the hexagon blocks..
The feathers are freehand, as are the twirls,  I used a small circle ruler  as a guide to create the "faux ric rac", and also I stitched a 1/4 inch out from the sashings using a straight ruler, and I stitched in the ditch separating the hexagons, just to hold the quilt nice and flat at this point otherwise it would have puffed up a little.
Elaine was thrilled with the results which was lovely to hear, and makes my job so enjoyable.   It is such a fun quilt and certainly inspiration to make another hexagon quilt (I went through a phase a while back making a few hexagon quilts before I was a longarm quilter....)
