Every month a group of us meet to quilt at a quilting shop with an attached restaurant.  Since it's a day of shopping, sewing and eating, I find it difficult to work on any project that requires me to pay attention. So I've found it's a great time to make a scrappy quilt.  I love on point settings and a floating look.  So this is my latest project.  Sew fine on top and Bottom Line in the bobbin, and Hobbs 80/20.  Since I love to quilt feathers and made a large border, I feathered it.  I used the pantograph waterworld in the center so it wouldn't compete with the feathers.

Beautiful Libby! That's a great idea to do a scrappy quilt when you can get easily distracted when in a group! ;)

I like the overall effect of the 9-patches turned on point, with background colors in the 9-patch.  Creates a line of diamonds across the quilt.  And I admire you technique with feathers!

Love it, who knew turning the ole nine patch a few degrees would make such a difference.
