This afternoon I taught a group of adventurous quilters to try free motion feather designs on their quilts. Here they are with their practise pieces - Brenda, Lorelei, Gail and Judy.
We sure enjoyed quilting in the lovely new classroom area at Reichards which has a high ceiling, with lots of windows and natural light. Everyone got a great start on mastering the technique and I hope they continue to improve their confidence, to try more feather quilting, and believe it when I said that the key is practise, practise and more practise! Each time I have feather quilted I have enjoyed it more, and like the end result more.
I used my mystery quilt to demo how to quilt one type of feathered border and I am totally amazed that this quilt might be finished for my next guild UFO meeting! This is an amazing turn around time for me...it has only been pieced for less than a month and hasn't had hardly any time to ripen!!
