Feathers are always a classic design and look great on every quilt. Here, they stand alone with a little crosshatching.
I used a stencil to make this quilt, but I had to do a bit of tweaking to make it all fit. I drew it lightly on a piece of craft paper, and once I had it all fitting properly around the central square, I darkened the lines with a wide permanent marker. I taped the pattern and the fabric to a large picture window and just traced the design right on to my lavender fabric.
I think I will make a fall version of this quilt this week–after all feathers are always in style–and always classic–or are they?
Perhaps I won’t work on classic feathers after all–I have a few not-so-classic feathers doing a chicken dance in my head right now!
I’m off to my sewing room…Quack, Quack! Waddle, Waddle!
