Sketch Book....Feathers



Feathers have been on my mind a lot lately...



I have been stitching them into quilts...






Drawing them out in the sketch book...






I challenge myself to draw them out

in different ways...






Each feather has its own personality!






Piggy Back Feathers are a favorite




It rained here in Western Oregon today:


Nothing prettier than rain drops on an iris leaf...


















Cows and Calves

I have just found your blog. Your feather "play" is fantastic. Thank you very much for sharing and inspiring. I'm a beginner quilter and practise feathers by drawing and stitching as often as I possibly can so finding your blog has made me even more determined to go on.

Hey LuAnn,

Thank you so much for sharing your feathers with us!!! Every single one is beautiful.

How do you get back to the spine after the piggy back set? (I', thinking the "second" series).

Thanks again.

Hi Maggie,

After you have completed the piggy back plumes, stitch back down the middle until you reach the main spine of the feather.
