Patsy Thompson, I decided to quilt it with feather designs.
Now those who are familiar with my stitching will know it elicits more of the "well, I guess it's quilted" rather than the "Wow! Look at the control, the precision, the exquisite stitching!" that Patsy gets. My feathers have shown a rather alarming tendency to become ferns or leaves, and on the borders, they change direction regularly, but overall, they DO manage to show some degree of featheriness. At least to non-quilters.
