Feather Practice

I know when you read this, you will think of a particular type of feather….something like this…..

But this time I am talking about a feather that would be attached to a Dreamcatcher!!

Here’s the story…..

I had planned to have three feathers hang from the quilted Dreamcatcher on my latest quilt…..

I was happy with the feather design that I had found until I saw THIS one…..

Now these plain old feathers just didn’t seem special enough……

What to do????

I started looking for other feather designs and came upon these two……

I liked both of them but was afraid that I wouldn’t be able to do the big one justice.

So it was time to do some practice….



I was happy with the fancy feather but still wasn’t convinced that I could do justice to it on the actual quilt.

Interestingly, editing this video and watching myself do the quilting convinced me that I COULD DO IT!!

AND…..spoiler alert….. I DID IT!!!

The straight lines did not turn out as well as I hoped….but come back tomorrow for that saga!!


In this blog, I post DAILY stories about creativity, techniques, tools of the trade, and lots more about the wonderful art of quilting. If you are enjoying these posts, please subscribe to be notified of each new blog as it becomes available.
