Happy Monday, Friends! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I had to pack in quite a bit of work to make something happen, but that’s okay. I am just now catching up with your comments/emails!
Often times what I plan in my mind for quilting scheme on my quilts don’t come to pass. On this most recently finished quilt, I had planned for formal feather plumes — but one just can’t quite force formal on adorable polka dots.
In the end, I turned to my informal pseudo feathers and “plume-ified” them. Basically, I quilted my plumes as I would in my regular feather plumes, except forming my feather lobes differently. It took a little bit to get used to. Just make sure you follow the path of quilting the regular feather plumes, and go from there, and I think you will be fine. The effect is lighter, air-ier, and sweeter!
