For two years now, I have been practicing feathers on paper but I never had the courage to quilt them on customers’ quilts.
Well… that changed this past week.
The local Guild has a charity quilt that needs to be done by mid April. There are approximately 50 blocks in this quilt-it is massive!
I decided that I would try feathers and if I messed it up, I could always pick out the stitches later on. Here goes….
The feathers turned out ok, I think. What about you?
Once I got started, I couldn’t stop. Is there such a thing as “feather overboard?” Maybe it could be a new quilting term.
The lighting wasn’t the greatest in these last 2 photos-I do apologize for that.
On a different note, I did finish two small panel quilts for the local school fundraiser in June.
I couldn’t quilt one for a baby boy and not one for a baby girl. These are what I bought and quilted up.
This panel is so cute..who could pass it up and not quilt it?
Once again, who can pass up this panel? I love the colors and the motifs on it.
My words of encouragement to you is “Try something you are afraid of”- you may be pleasantly surprised at what the results may be.
