    I think you did a fantastic job!!! I love feathers and some day I'll get up enough nerve to dive in too.

    Thank you all so very much! Twinkie, I didn't use a jelly roll. I started with a charm pack, cutting the squares in half. Added in more from my stash, as needed...

    For all of you who feel intimidated to try feathers, just give it a try. It may give you more confidence to draw the feathers out with a disappearing ink pen, and then follow your lines. It's not that hard once you get going.

    Feathering is great for filling in odd spaces like I had between the block stacks...

    it looks great and your feathers are looking good! its my bet to use coordinating thread with everything so that any mistakes blend in! try a wall hanging in contrasting color, see how it turns out. bet as pretty as they are you will be pleased!

    Your quilt is Beautiful. You may already know this but when I want to practice a new pattern I have a dry erase white board. I use the dry erase markers and practice the pattern until I feel comfortable with it. It makes it nice to be able to erase and draw the desin over and over Until I get It.

    Very nice....I think you did a great job on your "half hearts" ....do you have a Long arm or domestic sewing machine? I like the quilt design too. You just did a great job!
