Jo Botherway has made this gorgeous quilt over this last year, she was after a hand sewing project to work on while at her sewing friendship groups.  The pattern is one by Anne Sommerlad.  Jo has chosen the most divine border fabric to compliment the flowers.  I have used loads of feathers to quilt this quilt, all of the flowers have been outlined and then echoed around then the freeform feathers have framed each flower.  The border is feathers curling around the quilt, we treated the border and setting in triangles as one and this has helped create movement in the feathers as the wind around the quilt.  I have included a photo of the back of the quilt which shows the border design more clearly.  I loved working on this quilt and have totally fallen in love with the border fabric!  such rich colours.
