Wool Flowers

On this beautiful quilt with wool applique I quilted feathers (surprise, surprise!) and a lot of modern lines.

In the blocks I did two different designs: Either this one:
Or this one: I thought it would be fun to highlight the pinwheel aspect of this block, so I quilted back and forths in half of the triangles to give some texture but also to highlight the pinwheels.
In the background behind the flowers I quilted lines to signify air, and I stitched around the wool applique. You can see in this picture that I quilted feathers in the setting triangles and also in the outer border.
In the corner squares of the quilt I quilted a feathered wreath.
I used white colored thread across the whole quilt.
