This pretty quilt belongs to Dawn. It is the Ten Minute Block and you can watch a tutorial here if you are interested in making one of your own. Dawn used 5" squares.
Dawn told me that the recipient of this quilt was a really girly girl and left the rest up to me. I tend not to think of filling a quilt with feathers, but this one was asking me to. I decided to repeat the to open diamond shape where the four squares meet and add feathers around that.
One of the joys of being a longarmer is watching the quilt begin to transform before your eyes. I always like to step back and make sure I am happy with my design choices before getting too far along. I had a good feeling at this point!
I used Quilter's Dream Puff batting and a medium blue So Fine! thread. I did add one line of stitching in the 3d diamonds so they didn't stand up too much.
