    When I have a design that the spacing has to work out, I mark the spacing out with chalk. Marking spacing for feathers is important or you will either end up with a fat feather or skinny when you try to complete the circle if you haven't marked.

    The secret is to mark the first few feathers, leaving one or two marked feathers to be the last stitched when you come back around.
