Okay, it took a bit longer than I expected to finish up that center stitch-in-the-ditch and knotting/burying the threads. But the quilt is finished and is going out in the mail tomorrow morning. Here's a sneak peek of it. The feathers are done with the IQ (computerized longarm) but the pebbles and lined borders are hand guided free-motion quilting. The batting is a scrap of Warm & Natural cotton, doubled up for a bit more loft. Thread used is Superior Threads So Fine 50 weight thread in a contrasting color. Oops, I almost let loose what the colors of the quilt are. Ah, and finally the binding is the traditional sewn mitered corners method which really fills out the edges with batting.

UPDATE: It's now safely in the hands of the United States Postal system. :-)
