Default Working on Feather Border

I'm working away at a feather border for my queen quilt on my mid arm. I've never done a compete border before so I had to watch a video about a dozen times in order to figure it out. It's nowhere near as nice as hers, but it will (have to ) do.

2 sides down. 2 to go!

It looks lovely! Once it is all done and you step back, you will love it.

I think your work is beautiful. We are always our toughest critic. What mid arm do you have, I'm itching for something a little bit larger than my domestic Janome but small enough to fit somewhere in my small space. Please post a picture.

Your feathers rock!!! They flow very nicely and you will love them when finished. You are brave for using white thread, but that was the right call. I am always thankful too for you tube videos. I've learned so much by others willingness to share.
