Hand applique floral with 9 patch by Sara

Sara says that she isn't that thrilled with this quilt, but I think it's stunning!  The flowers were hand appliqued, the vines were done by machine.

 My first attempt at swags.  I think I've got some room for improvement, but I hope that Sara will love them.  I knew that I wasn't going to be able to turn the corner with the swags, so I did a corner fill by marking a partial swag, then filling it with feathers.
Free hand feathers in the background of the quilt, avoiding the appliques.  I'd hate to see all that lovely hand work mashed down with quilting!
