Fabulous Feathers...

This post is all about…..Fabulous Feather Quilting

I am participating in:

We are sharing our love of the Free Motion Quilted Feather.

This was quilted on my 

Sweet Sixteen Sit-Down Long Arm Machine

I couldn't resist covering it with feathers!

This is a very basic free motion feather design

This is the back side of the Zinnia Quilt:

I sketch out the feather design in my Sketch Book

then again on a dry erase board several times.

That reinforces the feather design in my mind

 before I stitch the quilt.

Here are a few of my favorite feather designs 

from my Sketch Book

Bump Back Feather

Piggy Back Feather with Filled Spine

Feather with Curls

Bump Back Feather w/ Curls

I just had to share with you. I saw your quilt previously and fell in love. I had to make my own rendition of it, which will eventually be quilted. The color in the picture is horrible, but you will get the idea.
