My favorite part is the border. She plans to scallop the border so I kept the motif 2″ off the sides which will give her room to make the scallops. The best part is the feather ellipses. Joan will use those to form the scallop and they will work just perfectly together.

The flying geese have a continuous curve. The flowers have leaf stems and petals. The background is a loopy-loo meander.

I used a white Sew Fine in the top and white Coats &Clark prewound in the bobbin. Batting is Hobbs Heirloom 80/20.

Such a happy Spring quilt!
