Been practicing free motion feathers, quite pleased with them.



This is why I’ve been practicing. This was a long-term project I started years ago and I got sick of the pieces lying around my work room so I decided to make it into a small baby size quilt, possibly for the hospital or for a future family addition. It seems the pull of other projects was always too strong and this one just got pushed further and further down the list.



Just sewing the binding on now – woohoo – I’m calling this a success! Love it.

Quilting feathers is a skill I’m always working towards, I have pages and pages filled with varying drawing attempts over the years.

Next are some teaching samples I made this week.
