    Wow, your look way better than my feathers and I have been practicing for about a year. Did you use a long arm? Is it easier to actually make the feathers with the long arm? I know it's easier to handle the project, but actually forming the feathers?

    Am so sorry debbie, I missed your question. Yes this was on my long arm. I am not sure it is easier, but I have never done freehand feathers on my DSM. It was definitely different than doing it on paper. I was able to get consistent shapes and sizes on paper. But getting there.

    What a wonderful idea using a dry erase board to practice before working on fabric! You are doing great!
