    quilted feathers

    I made this small quilt a fews years ago and finally decided to try to quilt in on my New Joy Frame with the Janome 1600p.
    I've been wanting to do free motion feathers since I got the quilting machine & frame but wasn't brave enough. They are kind of rough, but that is for practice I guess.

    I wish I had one of those machines. My attempts at free motion is laughable but it works. Good job. Practice, practice, practice I understand is the key. (Grrrr. Not my favorite activity.)

    Your feathers look good to me. Mine are always lopsided.

    Thank you all. I didn't know the picture got uploaded. I really had a hard time figuring out how to upload a photo and I didn't realize that the image wouldn't be downsized like the use to be. I'll read some more help items and see if I can post some more quilts I made recently.

    love your medallions! For the feathers, as they say about Carnegie Hall - Practice, practice, practice. But you can do it on paper, too. I get the big scratch pads at the dollar store. There are also a few good Utube tutes that are worth checking out - Just google 'feather quilting' or something like that. Most importantly, have fun!
    When life gives you scraps, make quilts!

    Thank you, the kaleidescope pinwheels were left over from a full size quilt I had made. Oh, I have been watching those videos on quilting.

    Well, I think you did a great job. I have the Janome 1600p also, but haven't tried it yet. No frame.

    It's a good machine. It works with the New Joy Gold frame just fine and there is a stitch regulator for that combination.

    I think you did a great job....and you certainly get kudo's for bravery.....can't bring myself to give this a go on anything I care about....just keep paying a long arm gal.......I'm working myself up to it slowly.

    That is so pretty and your quilting is awesome-I have had a quilting machine going on three years and I have been intimidated by it but I am going to try it out.
