    Feathers... My newest challenge

    Tried the proven way... It actually works . When I first tried to learn to do feathers about 3 years ago, I couldn't quite wrap my brain around the process. I did it backwards! Decided to keep trying. Used my glass doors as my dry erase board, so I could erase to my hearts content.... And then just went for it. I must say I am pleased! Still needs some practice to make it perfect... But I'll get there!

    Beautiful job Your quilt is really pretty and the quilting is great. Sometimes it just all of a sudden "clicks". Thats what happened for me and the feather issue. Be proud of your accomplishment!

    You did a nice job on the feathers. Maybe if I spent more time at my sewing machine and less time here on the board I would be able to do that!!

    They look great! I think you have mastered it. I hope I can learn to do them like that.

    Did you use a method of marking the feathers, or did you just "eyeball it"? You have done an outstanding job!
