Feathered Wreath

Project Description

What are you most proud of? My husband said he would like to see this practice piece framed after it is finished! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Relax and have fun, this is therapy afterall!

What you will need

  • This was my first "project" after practicing feathers and scribbles. I used a 10 inch wreath template with a partial template for the corner designs. The fabric is basic muslin. Batting recipe: bamboo/cotton with 1/2 layer of Hobbs wool batting. Design is quilted with 70 wt poly quilting thread
  • cream. Background was stitched with 40 wt poly
  • celery green. While "scribbling" I practiced feathers and ribbon candy designs. What fun!!!

Q&A with CeeJay55

Cindy Needham asked:
Wow! Your feathers and corners are simply amazing...what a beautiful job you've done! Love how the wool puffs up and makes it look like trapunto. Your husband was right...needs to be framed...if not that, at least bind it and hang it! Congratulations :)
CeeJay55 answered:
Cindy, I really must applaud you for your teaching skills! I have been happy with my piecing skills, but not my quilting. Thanks to you and Craftsy for supplying such a wonderful and convenient learning platform!
Deb Cavanaugh asked:
Wow, it looks so perfect it could have been computerized. So pretty. I like the outer motifs framing it.
CeeJay55 answered:
Funny you should say that. Before taking Cindy's class, I used to search for digitized quilting designs for my embroidery machine! They are perfect, but my largest hoop will only do a 7.9 inch square.
Sonja Penny asked:
CeeJay the project is awesome! It is so beautiful. I'm still practicing. Which method did you use to traceyour design, e.g. the Sulvy clear stabilizer, paper, pouncing chalk, or drew directly on the fabric?
CeeJay55 answered:
I used the frixion pens Cindy used in her class. Found them online at Amazon. Love them!
