Hello Friends! A sick Miss Baby and a tight quilt deadline got in the way of blogging! Thanks so much for your kind words on my Candied Pomegranate quilt. Many of you mentioned you liked the feathers… thanks! Feathers are one of those elements that just add a special touch to a quilt. Some of you also wrote and asked about the sizes of my feathers. I thought it would be easier to show you in pictures:
As you can see, my feathers aren’t terribly big. It’s harder for me to quilt big feathers on my domestic machine. So, I generally keep mine on the small side. I tend to have a better control on the flow of the individual feather lobes. If you have trouble quilting your feathers to your satisfaction even after applying this principle, you might try tweaking with the size you are quilting your feathers. Let me hear from you if that helps! Till next time.
