Glorified Nine-Patch

In January, 2005, I took a class from Sharyn Craig on how to make the Glorified Nine-Patch with her techniques. It was such fun! I spent some time machine piecing some blocks and then drafting the setting triangles, and in a week I had the top finished. Then I waited for inspiration on how to quilt it. I finally decided to put feathers around each block, but I ended up waiting more, since I was contemplating buying a new sewing machine and didn't want to begin quilting on one and finish on the other. ;) After buying the new machine, I waited some more while I  got acquainted with its new capabilities. So this is the first project I've quilted using the brand-new Bernina 440QE, which has a stitch regulator. I finished it in April, 2005, and it measures 37" x 37". I'll use the quilt as a spring table topper in my little dining room

Here is a detail of the feathered quilting, where you can also see the yo-yos and buttons I added at the intersections of the blocks as embellishment:
