feathers - a work in progress

I am back at quilting my 4 block applique quilt. I loved quilting the feathers on my 9 patch quilt so I want to include some in this quilt too.
I need lots of practice at drawing them!

This is the space I am trying to fill. In each corner there is this open space that happened as a result of not bringing the vine around the corner.

This branching feathered sprig is what I have come up with so far. I have not decided how I will mark this - probably draw the feathers individually which means all 4 corners will be a bit different. I do enjoy a bit of whimsy in the quilting as I look at antique quilts as much as I love the perfect gorgeous wreaths of feathers in the wide borders of Amish quilts. However it turns out - I'll have lots of fun doing it! :0)

I thought I'd include a picture of the quilted center. The crosshatching is complete and the borders are outlined. I just need to finish up the rather tedious in-the-ditch quilting of the hst border and I'll be on to the feathers :0)

Happy Quilting!!
