Joan's medallion

Joan hand-pieced this beautiful quilt and did a fabulous job.  I love the colors she chose.  I didn't even realize it was hand pieced until I took it back to her. 
 It's 92 x 92, and I used 5 different colors of thread.

There are 4 center blocks on-point that are the same, and 4 in the corners that are the same.  
The rest of them are all different.

Here are the center blocks with green sashings between.  I quilted a small feather circle in the center, with line dancing and hooks in the rest.  The sashings have a wiggly line.

I quilted line dancing and hooks in the 4 corner blocks:

There is a floral block that separates the others, and I quilted a feathered wreath in each of those:

One of the remaining blocks - line dancing and hooks - 

There is a tan and pink border around the center blocks.  I followed the pattern of the cream paisleys in the tan border, and put large and small loops in the pink:

The  next center border is green, and I put feathers in there:

I added feathers in the setting and corner triangles:

Next comes an outer green border, then a floral one.  The green has loops like the pink, and a simple meander in the floral since not much else would show:

The outer border is full of swirly feather.  I love how they came out.  They really make the quilt.  I pre-marked the vine, but the feathers are all free hand 

The backing is the same as the pink on the front.
