I know I said I was going to do something other than feathers but I just couldn't help myself. I bought a lucky dip selection of fabrics and found this beautiful navy taffeta and I had a reel of King Tut's ELS cotton just crying out to be used.
This is what I came up with.........
I designed it myself but took my inspiration from "Feather Adventures , Vol 1" by Patsy Thompson.
A 'must have' book if you are a fan of feathers.
I had to use tailors chalk as my invisible pen wouldn't show up.
I used a thread to match the background and stippled it all over. It's worth mentioning that I used 2 layers of Hobbs heirloom 80/20 wadding becasue I wanted the plumes to look full and firm.
Rhonda , from Quilter in the Gap is hosting this weeks TGIFF party and there are already several linkys there for you to peruse. So why not take a minute and pop over.
Today I'm going to the 1st major quilt show of the year in Edinburgh. Woooo hoooo! My bag is empty and my purse is full - when I come home it will be the other way around. I'll be back over the weekend with some inspiring quilty photos. ( I hope)
Enjoy your friday.
