What materials did you use? The bricks are from a Stonehenge fat quarter pack, and I was so lucky to find that awesome border fabric from Joann's (I used it for the back, too)

What are you most proud of? This was my first time finishing a full quilt using only free-motion! Look at that feather border! I thought it would be impossible using only my little domestic (the instructor mainly uses a long-arm in the class), but man, I think they came out great. I think it was because I didn't have so much fabric bunched up in the throat of the machine while doing the border, so I was able to get some really smooth lines (unlike the swirling water in the middle; that was pretty rough ^^; )

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I wouldn't recommend this for beginners at applique; even with my 10" x 24" spot for the piece, it still has some really tiny, thin bits that are a pain to work with (like their arms and legs). It was great practice for doing some free-motion quilting though; definitely recommend practicing on pieces you plan to give away so you don't see all your mistakes!

Wowser, it's fabulous! Thanks for sharing your applique idea. Your feathers are perfection. Great project.
