Final Basket Border

I've been plugging away at the basket quilt. A little bit each day. First I started with my scallops and then I thought and thought about how to get those feathers in there. I had tried to put the feathers on the inside of the scallops and that just didn't work, so I improvised.
Then I finally figured out how to make the feathers work on the outside, add a swirl!
I know this looks like orange fabric, it's not. It's a beautiful red, my camera just doesn't like it.
I have used more blue pens than you could imagine, marking this quilt over and over. It really needs bath!
How about the back, is this better?
The last detail, after the feathers. I like it and I'm too tired to remove any quilting.
I've noticed that I tend to make fat feathers. But they are just unique to me. Like a fingerprint. Maybe.
The next step is to get the binding on, then I can devote myself to the challenge quilt.

Take care, Brandie

Quilting looks awesome! I think everyone has their own feathers, like a signature. Yours look so pretty.
