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.
