Tail Feathers Quilt top is finished.






Tail Feathers top all done! The sun is shining, but there is a little breeze, so the photo isn't the best.


Some closer shots....









.......and even closer...




I really enjoyed making this quilt. Especially all the embroidery. I can't believe it is done!!!

In the garden my roses are just starting to bloom.
