The quilting has begun. I used wool batting and as the feathered star points are quilted it puffs up around them. My goal is to quilt down the background and then have those tiny feathers puff up instead once it is finished.
I had to concentrate intensely to quilt the tiny feathers that are less than 1/4” wide and about 1/4” long. I took lots of breaks so the quilting didn’t progress too quickly so guess that is what I will do right now....take a break, not too long though.
