Meandering Feathers

My client "M" brought this hidden 9-patch quilt over for me to quilt. She just wanted a meander, she said, but if I wanted to do something different, too, it would be okay. I have done so many normal meanders that I was a little bored, so I started to play around with different ways to meander.
I finally came up with this cool design: a HUGE meander was the spine of my feather.

Then I echoed the feather to fill the rest of the quilt top.

It turned out really cool looking. And didn't take very long at all.

It is a great way to dress up a quilt, just using a simple meander. I used an eggshell colored thread.
