The inner border is again a problem area, which I am still evaluating on which FMQ design might work. I have two different thoughts about it:
1. Wood grain FMQ
2. Just straight line quilting echoing the triangles which are formed against the inner border.

The Plume Feathers looks lovely from the back. First I was stiching in the ditch around the X blocks, but that took away the beauty of the Plume Feather. So, I skipped doing that.
I used So Fine#50 Dark green thread, this thread does blend beautifully, but for some reason my machine didn't like it :-(. Had lot of thread issues. So, for Sulky 40wt Rayon threads works well with my sewing machine. I have tried quite a few different brands of thread both cotton and polyester but this is the one which works for me. But from time to time I get tempted to try something new ;).
Now on to my next post about my Groovy Quilt.
