Well, I've been practicing quilting feathers. Don't look too close! This has been a real challenge, but I'm feel more confident than when I started. I tried to quilt from one orientation position and found that I can make better quilting lines in some directions than others. My speed was also a factor that I haven't quite figured out yet. If I go too slow, the lines get a bit jerky and if I speed it up then I tend not to slow down when I should. I also tried a bit of filler quilting between the plumes. It's my hope to be able to quilt feathers on a quilt when I think they would be appropriate.
