I have finally started to fill in those triangles. I kept changing my mind as to what to quilt. I settled on
these feathers. I've completed 4 of them. There are a total of 18 triangles. I have practiced feathers and quilted a few but not to this extent. I just sort of took the plunge!
Before I took a class with Leah Day, I would have just drawn the spine and filled in the feathers free hand. She taught us to actually draw the feathers with fabric pens that are air/water soluble. She was absolutely right! I may not make the feather exactly as drawn, but the spacing is all done. I know I'll have space for what I plan on quilting. Much of the guesswork is gone.
Leah Day also made me slow down! I quilt so much better when I'm more in control. This picture shows one side completed with the feathers. I'm really loving the results!
While I'm busy quilting, two kitties get upset with the lack of attention. They tend to wrestle and run all over the house. Fresh kitties!!
