Quilting Sketch Book.....Feathers with a Filled Spine

This is a basic feather design:

When you draw out a double or hollow spine

and fill it with a design...

you get a feather with a filled spine

Feather with a Filled Spine

This is how I draw and stitch it out:

I try to avoid back tracking 

when stitching out a design,

but sometimes it can't be helped.

I do back track in number 5 on the left side,

to get back down to the base to draw the feathers

on the left side of the spine.

Check out what is happening in the back yard:

Climbing Rose on the patio...

Red Dahlias

The yearling cattle come up to the back yard fence:

They want to know if Gunnr can come out and play?

Yes, Gunnr is always ready to play with the calves!

My favorite yearling calves.....this year:

Life in the back yard......beautiful this time of year!
