What materials did you use? 100% cottons in rainbow colors on white background. Quilted with cotton variegated thread both top and bobbin. I drew the stem, then free-motion quilted the feathers, adding a rib inside each. I went back and echo stitched last. The back is a solid delft blue so the variegated thread makes a pretty back. I did this start to finish in about 1 1/2 days at a retreat.

Thank you. Go for it! It's a nice way to use those bold colored solids or almost solids.

Thanks, Ann. I'm learning a lot and gaining confidence doing feathers and other creative quilting.

I've since added couched lime green YLI Candlelight thread down the spine of the feathers - adds a lot of subtle pizzazz. Several of the rainbow fabrics I used are from the Gradations collection designed by Caryl Bryer Fallert-Gentry for Benartex. We just saw her awesome show in the Quilt Museum in Paducah on through the end of March.
