Sketch Book......Feathers Filling Space

A few more feather designs from the Sketch Books:

It is FUN to take a given space (rectangle, square, circle) and fill it up with feathers.

Use ALL available space....every inch of it...

It is FUN to stretch out the plumes to fill in the space...

Use a chalk mark to define the feather spine, then fill in all of the given space with plumes.

Divide up the quilting area with lines (top of page).

Fill in those areas with feathers to take up all available space.

It is a great way to fill in a lot of negative space in the background areas of a quilt.

 We are still enjoying the last few hollyhock blooms:

Pink Hollyhock......just opening
