Hunter Star

 A new client brought this to me earlier this year to quilt and let me basically have free reign to do whatever I thought would look good. This is what I came up with.
 In the blocks (the set of 4 triangles) I quilted a feather wreath. I did a back and forth design in each of the small trapezoid pieces between the stars.

Because the stars had some bulky center seams, I chose to avoid quilting in the stars and just outline quilted them by stitching in the ditch.
 In the inner border I quilted loops. I then combined the two outer borders into one and quilted a large feather across them.
And I couldn't resist taking a photo of the back. I just love how all of the quilting came together on it. You might have to click on the photo to make it a little bigger so you can see all the detail. (I'm still learning how to use my camera, and my husband has changed some settings for the better on it since these pictures were taken!)

As far as thread goes, I believe that I used So Fine! Ginger, a goldish-brown colored thread.
