All Those Feathers From Just 3 Birds!

My Baltimore Album Sampler is finally done..5 years after starting the applique blocks.  About half of them were done 2006-7. Then the project got put aside for a few years.  I finished the applique blocks last year and once again set it aside to be quilted. Got most of the quilting done before we left for Iowa last week.  Monday and Tuesday I finished quilting the borders with lots of random feathers.  Yesterday and today I put the binding on. 

I'll have to get better pictures when I have help holding it up or a rack to hang it on.

Absolutely stunning. I have just started a Baltimore block quilt and am on block 3 - I just know it will be a LONG TERM project. Your colours are lovely. Lorna from South Africa
