Guess what? - Kathleen responded and told us how she finished the quilt. Thank you Kathleen!

Thank you everyone for your great comments! I quilted the quilt and then cut around all the feathers, leaving about 1/4”. Then I took out all the stitches around the feather tops, turned the front and back in on each other and hand stitched the edge closed using a blind stitch. That is basically what I did, but I figured out a couple of tricks the second time....I had to get the quilt to a show and hurricane Florence hit us, so I didn’t have light or water...and I was late as usual! When it came back, I could see where I could improve it, so I took it out and did it again...very time consuming. It really looks great on my bed with a dark red sheet.
This winner of the Viewer's Choice award in Charleston has us scratching our heads. We can't figure out how she did the edge treatment on this amazing quilt. Enjoy Blanket of Snow by Kathleen V. Stuart.

I am stunned at the imagination of all these wonderful quilters.

I think this is what we "old" quilters have always called a "knife edge". Beautiful !

Thank you Kathleen for sharing how you did the edges, a brilliant idea, and it worked wonderfully! And thank you too for adding your story of getting the guilt to it's destination.

I think I would have added a facing, as in dressmaking. I think it would have worked.
It is a most stunning quilt. Should have won more.
