Indigo - Finished!

The Monochromatic Challenge, hosted by Judy at Patchwork Times is moving along. The Indigo is now finished. I loved quilting this one! There are all these open spaces to go crazy with feathers. For the medium floral sections, kept the feathers simple since they would not show.

Although looking at this, there seems to be only three fabrics used, indigo, medium floral and white -- actually, there are five. The real reason was that I did not have enough of one indigo. However as a scrappy quilter, it logically needed more variety.



And the back -- a simple floral.

OMG, Jamie - I thought this quilt was stunning before the quilting but you outdid yourself this time! Your feather quilting is amazing!! I have GOT to learn how to do those!! Remind me - do you use a domestic tabletop machine, or a longarm to do that?
