What are you most proud of? My "seaweed" feathers. These are my best so far. They remind me of seaweed, gently swaying in the ocean current.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't be discouraged. With practice, you will improve. Have fun and get into the groove.

Hi Jennifer. I was reading your post and enjoying all your beautiful work. Yep, you're really doing a great job on feathers. Hopefully I'll be able to learn them like you. Thanks for sharing your photos.

Thanks so much. It is really rewarding to see how much you can improve with practice. Keep working at it. I was really unhappy with my feathers before, but taking Angela's class has helped me tremendously.

I agree, Jennifer, that practice really improves the look of feathers. I am enjoying using Angela's techniques also. Looks like you were having fun practicing. Looking good!

Thanks so much! I'm having a blast. I even got my Son and my Mother in on it yesterday.

how are you making these, with just a regular sewing machine? or do you have a special embroidery/quilting machine?

Hello Dorothy. Thanks for your comment. I am currently quilting with a Juki mid arm on a New Joy Frame.

Your feathers are super... I have bought this class but have yet to even look at it... but you have inspired me with your samples. Thanks Jennifer
