Finished my next challenge quilt

The theme for the challenge was wedding. We were giving a hankie and a pice of white on white fabric. We were told to use lace. This is what I made. It is titled 'Penguin and Turtle'. It is my youngest daughter's wedding. This is their first dance.The hankie I got was black. I used it and lace on the first border. The colors yellow and burgandy were her colors for the wedding. The ribbon below is left over ribbon from the wedding with the names and date on it. There is a turtle button at one eand representing Brian and a penguin button representing Samantha. We tried hard to find a cake topper with a turtle and penguin but ended up with a glass one of penguin bride and groom. The turtle and penguin are the bride and grooms favorite animals.
This is a close up view. I used bullion stitch to simulate the flowers in her hair
These are close ups of my not so great machine quilting. It is the first time I have done anything but meandering!

The wall piece is beautiful! Feather take some practice, but you will eventually get there. I wish I could teach you in person. They are my specialty!
