Darma Sunrise

I got a little carried away with the quilting on this one.
Darma Sunrise 46" by 36"

I started the border first on this one. One of our LQS, Sew Original is hosting a "Solids Challenge" and this was originally going to be my entry.
I love how the border looks. But originally I wasn't loving the dark gray I used in the center.
So I decided to lighten it up with quilting. And I quilted a lot. 
Feathers, fronds, swirls, oh my!

I believe this will serve nicely as a teaching sample for a while.
The backing is a batik I had in my stash, and the colors worked perfectly.

Love the quilting! I like the gray:) Need you to help me with feathers. Still don't like how mine turn out. Yours are great!
