My Quilting Published in another book

Coincident with the AQS Chattanooga show, their book (below) is now published and for sale.  I was contacted in the early winter about quilting a quilt for it.  It was intended to showcase the quilting of modern-day quilters, on what are very traditional patterns.
 And, my quilt hung in the author's booth at the show (but the photo I was sent was painfully blurry so it's not posted here).  Here's my photos of it (unbound).  It's not a very big quilt, something around 32"x40" if memory serves.
 I double batted it with a scrap of wool to get nice relief.  The quilting is done with gold, red and white Glide thread.
 I added these diamonds  (the one below is sideways!) but chose to not center them.  I wanted to draw the viewer's eye towards the top of the quilt, and allow it to wanted from there to the bottom.   I just love the effect.  All but the feathers was done with templates.  You know me, I love those frames and dense fills to show them off.
 The feathers are allowed to meander in both directions...another trick to keep the eye moving.
 It's a great little quilt and I can't wait to see the others that are in the book.  My copy should be here soon!

This is just exquisite! What you did with a plain old chain is so beautiful. At first glance I thought the triangles were part of the piecing. I love your work.

Congratulations, you are a marvelous quilter.
