Project

Plume Feather, Circles & Swrils

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!
Malini answered:
Thank you! It does help if we doodle on paper a lot before trying to FMQ.
Pamelon asked:
Very nice - I love the stitching on the black background - you could do a whole-cloth quilt like this. Beautiful!
Malini answered:
Thank you. Yes, that's definitely on my to do list :-).
