Plume Feather


I had an odd shaped triangle that I was trying to machine quilt. I looked at all sorts of websites but couldn't find anything I really liked.  I started looking through some of my quilt books and finally found what I was looking for! It is called Plume Feather. It's more of a fern than a feather.Thank you, Angela Walters! I found it in her book, Free-Motion Quilting. I buy books all the time and don't always end up using them. This time, this book was a life saver!

I practiced it a few times on some scrap fabric and when I was comfortable enough, I did it! I was a bit nervous but am happy with the results. Here's another view:


I'm happy with my quilting so far.  I just tend to take awhile in making decisions concerning just what quilt motif to use.  I can all over meander a quilt in a few days but find it so much more time consuming when quilting different designs in different areas. Maybe, in time, that will become quicker too.

I'll be linking up at Amy's Free Motion Quilting Adventures for the final week of free motion feathers.  This month has just flown by!

  5. Fits the spot perfectly! Nicely done. Thanks for linking up. "Sit and Stare" time is definitely part of the process and I do hope it gets less time consuming to plan the quilting as we gain experience!

  7. That was a great way to fill that triangular shape. I find deciding on what to quilt in each area the most challenging. It's such a relief once I've got a design down on paper ready to quilt. The quilting's the fun part. Great job.
