Feathered Frenzy Fresh from the Frame

Marie's Square Pants quilt finally is done!! Yahoo!  This one took 29 magna glide bobbins just on the quilt alone.  It has two layers of batting, hobbs 80/20 on the bottom, wool on top.  Premo Soft thread on top for the feathers and Glide for the printed areas.  I don't think I've ever used that many bobbins on a quilt before.  Now I just need to finish up the two pillow shames and two throw pillows and the entire set will be done.  I need a nap!
