The quilt has dense 9-10 stitches/inch quilting. The center is a 31", 4-pointed star with 4 points behind it, and a small feather wreath in the center. Small scallops are quilted around the points of star. A small 5/8" grid of diamond provides the background quilting. Two quilted borders have a single cable and a straight feather.
