Flying geese applique quilt

I have quilted the green border, it was my first feather border and it won't be my last!, I quilted one side of the feather at a time, I used a flexible ruler to mark the stem.

I have started quilting my geese, again one side at a time LOL!

I am really enjoying the quilting and it's mostly gone well, but there has been lots of ripping out too, I treated myself to a new clover ripper and a little cute red pot that sits by my sewing machine waiting to catch the threads.

Thank you for popping by : )

I love your quilting. I do one side at a time too. Most of the time because it keeps it one continuous stitch. Can't wait to see more.

do you use a marker to mark your lines before quilting, or are you just winging it? This quilting is seriously awesome!

I only Mark the stems of the feathers, I wing the rest and if I don't like it, I rip it out.
Thank you for your comment : )

I am totally loving the quilting on this quilt! I had a great time on my first feather border too. I love the feather fill in the blocks as well - I have never done one like that before! I bet the wavies on the border that you were concerned about before have gone away with the quilting as well - it probably puckered a bit because of the heavy quilting in the middle of the quilt. Now that it is getting quilted that much on the outside too it is probably fine. Can't wait to see it finished.
