Folded Feather

I've been playing with wool batting and fine silk threads lately. Wool has a remarkable ability to compress as well as fill out quilting designs. This was a class sample from a Craftsy.com class, teacher Cindy Needham. She really inspired me. 

Quilt measures 23-1/2"x18"

Fabrics are all silk dupionni. I used a heavy (35-wt) cotton variegated thread for the feather; the rest is #100 silk thread.

That background fill pattern is something Cindy Needham calls "pearls and swirls." I love it!
