The most awesome xmas gift

Yes, I"m back to Christmas gifts. Our Monday night sewing group exchanged gifts in late Jan and I'm just getting around to sharing one. My friend Julie made this. Is it not awesome! She has become such an awesome machine quilter on these small pieces! And she found that outlining the feather in a different color really adds to the quilting. She made them on silk fabrics and then put them in these beautiful frames.

What a great gift they are! I just had to share with you!

That IS gorgeous!!! What a fantastic idea. And just a little bling too! You are a lucky girl, Dawn!

Sometime could you ask her some details about your piece (at your convenience...I'm in no rush)? Like what weight of silk? Any interfacing? Batting used? I am so interested!!!
