Using one of my very favorite threads to quilt - LAVA Diamond Head, and it is quilting up beautifully!
I chose to take a queue from some of the blue log cabin fabrics, which had a swirl flourish motif - seems to be working out well and a bonus, it's FUN to do!

Now that I no longer have to spend my time driving up and down our country roads searching for my golden bear, I've been able to make more quilting headway! I'm about halfway through this awesome Log Cabin QOV that 'Terri' did such an amazing job of piecing - hope to be all finished up by week's end. I'll post updates when I finish and now...time to get back to the FUN!
UPDATE 3/20/2014: Finished and ready to ship!

|Aren't these spikey feathers w/swirls neat?|
|And they match the eagle feathers in the center motif|
|Love the texture created w/feathering & McTavishing!|
