This is John's Bridget Millar quilt and it is a fabulous quilt for using up your scraps. The pattern is designed my Carolyn Konig and can be found in Australian Patchwork and Quilting (Vol 15, No.11).
John requested that the quilting be similar to the picture in the magazine and once I saw that it was free hand feathers I was very happy to fulfill his request.
I added piano keys in the outer border to compliment the feathers.
Below is the picture of the quilt in the magazine ...
...and a close up of the quilting in the magazine.
I recreated the same feather motif in the background and just changed the feather motif in the square to a larger plume to balance with the other feathers.
