    I've gone feather crazy!

    I've been working hard this weekend have my second finish since my shoulder surgery in February. This is a pattern from Julie Popa, called Running Diagonally, and I used a fat quarter pack of vintage style fabrics. While I was recovering from rotator cuff surgery, I watched a ton of You Tube videos on how to quilt free form feathers. Now that I've figured out how to make them, I can't stop myself! The runner measures 71.5 x 16". Thanks for looking, and have a happy 4th of July!

    Just lovely! You made good use of your time "off". Were they done on a domestic?

    Your runner and feathers are beautiful. Are you using a DSM to make feathers? I wish I could make feathers; they enhances the project.

    Beautiful. Did you mark the pattern first, or just FMQ them as you went along?

    Thanks! I am lazy and do everything I can to avoid marking my quilts, so I just FMQ'd them as I went along.

    Your feathers are gorgeous, curvatious and at a lovely angle. I love feathers and just love to do them too. Someone forgot to tell you they are addictive.

    I've decided that they are Quilter's Crack (next to fabric, of course).
