PP1 1 – Practicing Feather Quilting

A quick pic to show you some progress on my experiment with feather quilting on my new quilting frame. There is a bit of a story, this is a test piece, for a practice quilt, for an actual quilt that was ‘just for a class’. More of the story to follow.



About bertcollections

I began quilting, with the help of some friends, in 2005, and have been quilting ever since. In that time, I’ve completed several projects in a variety of styles and colour combinations. My approach to quilting generally doesn’t involve using a particular pattern. I tend to have a concept I want to bring to life, or find a fabric on sale somewhere that looks like it could be turned into something fun. As the photos in the 'Introductions' post show, my quilts cross a range of styles, but generally use some strong colours and shapes.

    Your feathers look awesome!

    • Thanks. I didn’t like them so much when I sewed them, but once I pulled the stencil away the nasty bits disappeared into the background. Got to love tone-on-tone for quilting practice.

    Practice creates excellence, doesn’t it? Good job.
