Traveling Bee-utiful - July

Kathy requested a quilt top to go into her parents' cabin, using this quilt as her inspiration.

 

Immediately upon receiving he quilt, I knew I wanted to add more low volume/neutrals in two borders. I also wanted to repeat certain shapes: chevrons, flying geese, and log cabins.

 

I'd originally intended to add a couple minimalist New York Beauty blocks, but piecing those at 6" proved more frustrating than I liked. Instead, I switched in a couple of feathers.
