Quilted feathers and Painted Feathers....

Quilting has started on my CC quilt...yep, I'm quilting feathers.
Lets just say my "Julia's version of feathers"....If I didn't just hop in and do it , it wouldn't get done.
.I guess with time and practice, I will get better,  be more consistent and uniform.....but I'm really happy with it so far. 
One thing I have learned is that the feather quilting really does pull in the quilt...
Going around the corners was a challenge, not perfect, but will pass!
Not sure if you can see the quilting on the block....
This is what I'm quilting in the blocks, I just wanted something easy and not to densely quilted.
This is from Sally Terry's Hooked on Feathers book......
Now for feathers of a different kind....more beautiful!
These came through on an email from a friend....aren't they amazing!
There is a story behind these feathers, but unfortunately I saved these pics but lost the email that came with them... 
Enjoy their beauty....
A new week, new inspirations......♥
