Feathers are being showcased this month over at Amy's Free Motion Quilting Adventures. I have practiced feathers much more than actually used them on a quilt. I do have a few examples. This photo is from Blogger's BOM from a few years ago. I drew in the spine with a washable marker but quilted the feather free hand. I thought it looked pretty good for my first time!
This is from the same quilt but this feather is the mirror image of the one above. It was actually a little different to quilt. The direction of the spine changed the way I stitched the feather. They both look very similar.
My next goal is to quilt feathers in a border. I'm a little concerned about how to space them out. I also have to decide if the feathers should be curved, straight, etc. So many decisions to make! That will be my next challenge.
I'm linking up over at Amy's blog. Hope you check it out!
