I absolutely love our neighborhood. This year we did a progressive holiday party and it was amazing. We had great turn out, yummy food, and Santa even made and appearance. I am so thankful for our neighbors!
The feathers are starting to look mildly less wonky but I think if I were going to do a quilt I may trace a pattern first so it looks better... I don't have the hang of the freehand pattern yet as you can tell.
I went out with my sewing group today and I was inspired to try to learn how to free motion quilt feathers. I have done a million stippled quilts so I figured how hard could it be? The answer is: incredibly hard. I can draw the feather pattern beautifully with a pen but it is REALLY hard to get smooth quilted lines. Here is my test. It looks like a wiggly kiddo drew it. Apparently I need to practice a lot more.
