    Ok, to give you some background I wanted to practice using my HQ16 and practice making feathers. I purchased a whole cloth DWR pattern, because I was excited to get started and didn't have anything already pieced together. I know that my feathers got better by the end o fthe quilt, and it's just for my own use (unless DD comes to claim it as she threatens to).

    it looks great. this is probably the only way i would get a double wedding ring. Your feathers are looking good too from what i can tell. Feathers are my fav's.

    Yes, just learning feathers, so I am sure if I practice more and more, then they will improve. Thanks for the compliments, if I weren't so impatient to get back to using the HQ I would have taken the time to piece the top, but I just got the machine in Nov. and can't wait to get home every night and play on her. Its so hard to get any piecing done when I want to do nothing but quilt. I am sure it will all settle down and even out after a while.

    You are all so nice, thank you, I realize that I could do ten more quilts with the feathers before I perfect them, but the more I do the better I will get, as I have only had the HQ since November, I figure I have several years of practice before I can say that I am good at it. Thanks again for all of your compliments, this group always make me feel like my efforts are paying off and I greatly appreciate each and everyone.
