Quilted Feathers and Cross

Another framed free motion quilted feather, or three actually!!! Framing the little quilt allows it to be used by more people. Not everyone has room on their wall for a quilt, but make it little and put it in a frame, and now it is more user friendly!!! This can be on the wall or sit on a shelf!!! PERFECT!!!

This little quilt will be sold at my church during their bazaar next month :^)

The fabric was a free give-away, so not sure the content. Feels like a fine silk, but could simply be a brushed satin. I really have no idea!!!
