Sketch Book....

This design isn't really a feather...

just plumes:

Random plumes to fill the background areas of a quilt

The bottom portion of the page is a diagram to remind
me how to stitch this design out.

 Below is a fabric sandwich with random plumes
stitched all over:

 The following designs are lined up in a vertical row:
It helps to chalk mark lines on the quilt before quilting.
I drew pencil lines in the sketch book, then used the lines 
to keep me drawing the design an even distance apart.

Professional Quilter - Pam Clark designed a stencil to
quickly chalk the lines on your works great!

In the green border on this baby quilt, I chalked straight
vertical lines all along the border...
Then free motion quilted long loops along the borders.
Fast, FUN and Easy!

  1. I have been following all your sketches of these wonderful designs. I am working on a couple wall hangings and have done some different ones all over.
    Getting used to some of the loops and etc. I tend to want to move too fast I
    Great work you do!!!
