    Good tutorial.....and yes, doing that path will prevent the "row" look.

    Thank you so much for sharing this awesome technique! I just tried it and it worked beautifully! You should suggest it to Leah Day, and tell her how much her classes did to "spawn" this idea of yours. I'll bet she'd love the feedback as well as your suggestion.

    I could stipple till the cows come home or pigs fly; whichever happens first!!! But the feather stitch, I just have a hard time getting what the design should look like in my head. I tried doing the pencil and paper thing, even they didn't look like feathers!. Chris

    Thanks for sharing your insight with us.

    O.K., I've got to ask - azwendyg and everose both turned in the same tip. How did that happen?

    I'm not at all sure what you mean by that??? Everose did a "Reply With Quote" to my original post (just like I did to your post here), and entered an nice comment at the end.

    THIS IS BRILLIANT!! I've been avoiding meandering and have just been doing "stitch in the ditch" or sending it to my long arm quilter (who is trying her best to retire). I'm going to try your method!! THANK YOU!!

    I'm the opposite, I can stipple and meander to my hearts content, but I can't for the life of me do feathers, funny how our brains work
