I found this eyelet table scarf at a thrift store for only $1!  Here she is iwth a third place ribbon at the Big Sky Quilt Retreat and Show in Billings, MT.  It was entered in the machine quilting category.

 I knew I had to quilt it with lots of feathers.  

My process was fairly quick, but I did take the time to mark it first. This is my plexiglass drawing mat that I place over the quilt top and draw on with dry erase markers.  I use it to try  it various designs.  

This is the piece after I’ve made some preliminary markings.  I dew a flower, and then traced it with tissue paper.  I laid that under the white table scarf and drew out each flower.

Here it is from the back.  I faced it, and this was the first time I attempted facing a quilt rather than traditional binding.

And a few close ups.  This fun little vintage quilt hung at the UQSM show in Utah earlier this month, but didn’t ribbon.  That’s okay, I learned quite a bit from the judge’s comments.
