When I first started machine quilting I didn't really like feathers, probably partly because I had no idea how to make them. But once I learned, I also learned to really love them! I like the challenge of fitting them into odd shapes, such as this shape on my Mom's quilt. I drew the S shaped spine with chalk and filled in with feathers
Along the edge I put feathers in half of that shape.
The center is all quilted! Now I need to quilt the piano key border, sew on the binding and wash it! Hurray!
