Feathers and Swirls

I love doing feathers, so when this client told me she wanted me to quilt this quilt like a sample at Gracie Lou's that had feathers in it, I was really excited. It didn't turn out exactly like the shop sample, but it looked pretty close. :)
The pattern is a continuous pattern with maybe 1 or 2 stops per row of quilting.

I didn't use a pantograph, but freehanded everything.

The feathers all go in the same direction, but the swirls go both ways: clockwise and counter-clockwise.

This is the back of the quilt. My client pieced a cute border, which I centered the quilt top over.

I used a whole wheat colored thread.
