Reproduction Fabrics and Traditional Quilting

When Marion brought me this quilt my heart skipped a beat.  Even my husband, when he saw it on my machine, said that it is my kind of quilt as it is the design and fabrics I personally favour.  

Marion gave me artistic freedom to quilt it asking me to quilt it heavily with lots of feathers.  I was in heaven.

I quilted the straight lines in the sashing with the feathers in between to really emphasise it as a connector between the circular blocks.

The square piecing between the sashing I also quilted with some straight lines so the quilting here was more noticeable.

Each circular block was quilted differently with a combination of feathers and ditch stitching
