Finish Quilt

1. Layer quilt top, batting, and backing.

2. Quilt as desired. Machine-quilter Lynne Todoroff stitched large circles around each block and small circles in the center square of each block and in each sashing square and triangle. In each block she quilted a circular feather design around the center circle, and she stitched a triangular feather design in each setting triangle. Lynne also stitched an oval and diamond design in the inner border and a large feather design in the outer border.
