Oh I'm like that Omak - I find going in the left direction harder than going to the right! I had to get the brain around doing these in a different way to the feathers I've done before, but sorted that out although I used tons of paper practising!
Remember I mentioned you'd propbably find it easier to go one direction vs another. Isn't that goofy how our brains work? Maybe you could try turning your quilt around and going the other direction too - whatever works is the main thing.

Ah but I've been practising on another unquilted item - and now I'm going right to left as well! Did this yesterday

Ta, Sandpat and Omak - there's a great danger here if it's not being worn it will get feathered!

it might be a silly question, can this kind of quilting be done on regular sewing machine? that is all I have, or hand quilting?
