What are you most proud of? This is my first real scrap quilt. I used up some leftover batiks that had been in a box for a couple of years. (And, of course, had to buy a couple of fat quarters)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be aware of the edge of the quilt when quilting the borders! I lost part of a few of my feathers in the binding.

NICE! OK, I got to finish a quilt! :D

I've started telling myself that I can't buy any fabrics until I FINISH something! We'll see how long that lasts - -

This quilt is awesome! I am learning to do feathers. I can comfortably fmq (freehand) basic feathers. And, I love to lay 'em down. lol Again, beautiful quilt.

Hi Darns -- I went to the quilt show in Sisters, Oregon, on July 14th -- I was looking for an Angles/Feathers pattern -- nobody had ever heard of it! Did you make this up yourself?

Hi, Alyx, I did make up the name but the basic idea and pieced border came from the Quick Strip Paper Piecing class. Ann Petersen's class taught me how to free motion feathers. Lucky you to go to the Sisters quilt show! What fun! Deanna

WOW! I adore this one. Deanna, you continue to amaze and inspire me.

Thanks so much, Polarjo! I used up a lot of batik scraps in this one but now I have yet more scraps - never ends

The brown really sets off the orange! Amazing how this all goes together as a scrappy! Love it!

Thanks so much! I think I have discovered the secret to having a scrappy quilt appeal to me - each part of this one has one bright strip, one green strip, one purple strip and one strip of the palm frond fabric. They don't have to be exactly the same but I think I need some continuity from block to block to make me happy.
