Got this one finished recently and it will be winging its way to New York and owner Judith this afternoon.  I wonder if I'll ever be able to hand-deliver one of these NY quilts??  Love Love Love NY!

When I first saw the top, my immediate reaction was "Oh, let's play!"  This is the perfect quilt to do some custom on and Judith agreed.  

I used a traditional-type thread (SoFine) on this one, both top and bottom.

 I wish I were an accomplished photographer ... but THAT'S not happening.   So just enjoy the beauty of the colors of the quilt and look at how well put together it is.  Good job, Judith!

This is a close-up, sorta, of the medallion.  Those big corners were just jumping up and down, yelling "Feathers!  Feathers!  We want Feathers!"  Can't deny a corner, can you?

A real-close-up of one of the corners.  I broke up that big corner triangle into 3 sections and went from there.  Small green border got a back-and-forth leaf treatment, and the yellow/gold medallion border with the green cornerstones got a rambling feather treatment.  

The backing looks cool from this angle, doesn't it?
