Some of you may have noticed the link in my side bar for the Free Motion Quilting Challenge.I took the pledge to do this but failed miserably to do anything for January.
However, when I saw February's challenge of feathers, I knew I wanted to give it a go. I LOVE feathers !
I was so pleased with the result I made it into a cushion.
tutorial. I loved Diane's feathers - she is very talented. You can find out more about Diane and her work here
I quilted the background with as small as stippling as I could manage to make it really flat which would hopefully make my feathers look plump.
I used Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 wadding and thread to match the satin.
I can honestly say that I feel I've taken a gigantic leap in my progress with free motion quilting. For those of you who don't know much about me, I've only been free motion quilting for 10 months.
I am so pleased with this - I can't tell you!
I practice a lot and have heaps of determination!!!
Back of work.
For anybody who would like to join in the challenges, you can find all the info here. The logo and link will be on my sidebar all year.
Personally, I can't wait for the challenges by Wendy Sheppard and Patsy Thompson . I'm sure the other tutors will be great too. Wendy and Patsy just happen to be two quilters who I admire and I follow their blogs on a regular basis.
I wonder what March has in store for us - can't wait !!!
See you all next time.
PS Fast forward a couple of days and I worked a second piece this time on silk.
