As I have been posting, I am slowly working my way thru Angela Walter’s Fabulous Feathers Free-Motion-Quilting Challenge.
Today I spent some time working on another corner and, I must be learning something because this seems to be getting easier.
This time I was continuing to work in irregularly shaped areas….namely the “borders” heading into the final corner piece……
The first border design that I shared last week was this one…..
This time I wanted to try something a bit different and have the feathers both go the same direction so that it looks as if the feathers duck behind the triangle
….get it….duck feathers!! Hello….is anyone out there???
Sorry… a bit off-topic.
I started the same way by drawing the spine onto the fabric…..
After I quilted the two plumes, there was a LOT of space left that would need a filler pattern, and, frankly, I didn’t want to spend THAT much time doing filler.
So, I decided to branch out again and quilt another smaller feather heading into the corner…..
As you can see, for some reason, I made one of the feathers short and fat but was able to compensate by curving the next feather over the top, filling in the area pretty well.
I would love to try a feather sometime where there is a LOT of curving over the previous loop.
After I finished these plumes, there was a bit of echoing and filling and then it was finished……
One of the most important things that I am learning here is that…..
THE FEATHER WILL LOOK GREAT REGARDLESS!!!!!
And that is an important thing to learn!!
