Traditional variation - pattern coming soon!
67" x 78"

This quilt was quickly sewn, using 4" charm squares from Moda fabrics. Additional fabric was used for the alternate squares, setting triangles and borders. It meant that a few squares went a long way!

The feathers in the alternate blocks worked well. They gave some circular movement to what would have otherwise been all squares. In addition, the outer lines of the pattern which convert the circle into a square are gently waved - not a harsh straight line. This meant that they looked great - even if my piecing wasn't!

The cross-hatching pleased me just as much. It helped show off the feathers, but did not detract from the 4 patch blocks - and in fact brought unity to them.

The outer border quilting was done by firstly placing the inner p2p triangles using the ends of the narrow border and the centre of the setting triangles as registration points - I eyeballed this, rather than measuring it. Then the outer p2p triangles were placed, using the edge of the quilt and the tips of the sewn inner triangles - again eyeballing this.
Once the triangles were completed - it became very apparent that the gap between them was way too large!
This wide 'pathway' was quickly filled using the x3 version of Swirl vine - again, eyeballing the registration points. I used the point which was halfway between the tip of one triangle and the start/end point of the opposing one. What a solution!! Fantastic!
It was - of course - meant to be like that all the time!
