I'm done quilting the feather quilt! The binding is done, too. It just needs the threads clipped and a label. I can give you sneak peek of the back; the rest will have to wait until it's gifted.
I'm hoping to do a full reveal later this month.
Just after I bound it, I ran into problems. Some of the binding caught wrong, but a little ironing and restitching fixed that. Then I discovered an ink spot in the front, on the white. It's a little dot, but how the heck did I do that?!? I would try to remove it, but I figure I'll make it worse. Better a little black dot than a larger grey splotch. Lastly, I found one feather's seam had pulled apart. The white thread nested in the middle of dark blue is what caught my attention. I'm really surprised I hadn't noticed it with all the ironing when I pieced it. I Stitch Witchery and carefully hand stitched that down. I am sure that no one but me will ever notice that (or think that the stitches were on purpose).
I need to get it out of here before I find something else wrong! Because really, there is so much right about it. I can't wait to show it off for real.
