Good Morning, Quilters!
Today I bring you Quilted Feathers! Not exactly what you think of when you hear “quilted feathers”!
Before we look at feathers, I need to address the ongoing problem with duplicate emails.
I am aware of the problem, and I will again ask for your patience. Please do a quick “delete” of one of the emails and then proceed to LKQ. My daughters are working on this for me as it has not been an easy fix. Technology-we love it, until it messes with us!
BERNINA We All Sew Tutorials
Yesterday’s tutorial for Scalloped Hearts was sponsored by BERNINA and I provided a link to the tutorial. You do NOT need to own a BERNINA to use the link or to follow their tutorials. All are welcome and most of the tutorials are not brand specific.
I highly recommend the BERNINA We All Sew site for excellent information and tutorials on a wide variety of sewing topics. This week my “Beginner Sewing Club” (more on that later) used the Speedy Pillowcase Tutorial to whip up several pillowcases!
I LOVE feathers! And I LOVE whole cloth quilts. Quilted Feathers as a whole cloth quilt is a winning combination!
I’ve quilted feathers before. but this time I added more detail and more motifs to fill the sections.
To make the feathers, I created a quilt sandwich with lightweight Warm and Natural cotton batting. Next, I lightly sketched a feather shape.
Then I outlined stitched the feather and filled in each section with a variety of motifs.
Finally, I stitched the outline several times and cut out the shape.
For this quilt, I decided to fill in the background instead of cutting out the feathers.
I outlined the feather in black before stitching the background to give the feather more definition.
I love to quilt small projects like this when I only have a few minutes in my sewing room. They are quick to make-but do require careful, slow stitching.
What about YOU?
Do YOU ever create small quilted projects?
Have YOU ever framed a quilt?
What’s your favorite motif?
We’d LOVE to hear
