What are you most proud of? I finally got some what hang of plume feathers. Need more practice though.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Try to draw on paper the stem of the plume feather. It is very crucial to get the S-curve and the top swirl right. Once you get that everything else falls in place.

Great feather, I've not even dared attempt that yet!

Thank you! It does help if we doodle on paper a lot before trying to FMQ.

Very nice - I love the stitching on the black background - you could do a whole-cloth quilt like this. Beautiful!
