Today I finished quilting this on my longarm. Although I've been quilting for almost eight years, I have not spent much time perfecting feathers. To tell the truth, I didn't have much interest. But perspectives and experiences change and I've felt challenged to improve my feather designs.
These are the feathers I put in the border. For me, the hardest part of feathers has been finding a style that works: my style.
I purchased two books last year that have assisted me in working through developing my feather style: "Freemotion Quilting" by Judy Woodworth and, "Feather Adventures!" by Patsy Thompson. So what do you think? Do you think I have found my style? I would love to know your thoughts about feathers.
This is the quilt center, using the flame and line quilting that I am partial to.
It is my preference to add some type of line quilting to create structure and bring balance to the curved quilting, in this case feathers.
Until next time,
