I'm machine quilting the borders on the smaller version of Lorna's Vine. I'm "fracturing" the feathers.
It is entirely possible that other quilters have done this before me, but I don't remember seeing feathers done quite this way before. It's a fast way to fill the entire space with closely-quilted, feathery lines.
Click the photo to enlarge it. This is a blog feature that went away (I don't know why) and now it's back (I still don't know why). But it's nice to be able to see details better.
