Feathers on Dream Big

I was off this past weekend which is a rarity for me. I thought I would get so much done! I did a little free motion quilting on the Dream Big panel. This picture shows one of the leaves quilted with feathers and pebbles surrounding them.

This is a much smaller leaf. I just did a little wishbone in it.

This was a much larger leaf. I made a feather with pebbles in the spine.

This was just a portion of a leaf poking through. I decided to just make swirls.

This was also a smaller leaf. I tried to make hook feathers. One seemed to have become squished in the process! 

That's all I did! I think I'll like it when it's done but it's a little frustrating to me. The leaves can be good sized or small. I feel as though I just get comfortable quilting in that space and it's already time to move on! I'm using this panel as a teaching tool. It's fun to be able to use the many different feathers I've seen over the years. I just wish I was more comfortable with all of them!
