Judy L is posting feather lessons on her blog, find them under her tutorial tab. I have a feather phobia that I am trying to overcome. I am going to make feathers.
I made the Carpenter's Star top for the lessons but when it came down to starting to quilt on the quilt top, I just couldn't do it. So I got out this UFO which just happens to be the UFO for May in the 2012 UFO Challenge. I decided to just do it and quilted feathers in the border. Then I did a swirly meander in the center. I pulled out the binding pieces bag and made a binding and now this is finished.
And I made feathers! One corner looks pretty good, the other 3, not so much. My feathers look better on the bottom border than on the top. I do better going in one direction that in the other. I have lots of practice to do. I think I may just conquer this phobia.
