    Practicing feathers!

    After seeing Twinsister2's pictures of her feathers & how she had practiced, I decided I needed to quit saying how much I wanted to quilt feathers & just quilt some. I have watched videos & I've filled a large pad with doodles of feathers for a long time, but never seemed to be able to quilt them. I cut an old sheet & went to town. Still need to practice backtracking with the bump feathers, but I'm pleased & hope that I get brave enough to actually quilt them on a quilt. I use an older Juki on a Little Gracie II frame.

    Don't know what size this "practice quilt" is, but it seems it's nice enough to bind it. Really good work!
    One step at a time, always forward.

    It's small...about 3 1/2 feet by 4 feet. Just an old sheet. Thanks for the compliment.

    Beautiful work. I love that "partitioning off" with the double lines too. Very very nice.
