It's a mystery quilt
This is Sharon's quilt; she made it as a Mystery Quilt at a local quilt shop. When I asked about using colored thread she didn't sound very enthusiastic but I couldn't resist using some pink and green thread in addition to the dark grey I used for the feathers. (It looks kind of blue in the pictures) I hope she likes the result!
I love quilts with a black background even though it is hard to see what you're doing when quilting them. All that black really makes the colors pop! I used black batting on this quilt since both top and backing are black and Omni thread.
