This post is a fifth in my Feather Practice Series, and today, I share how I do my Asian-inspired feathers and spine variations. These designs work great on Asian themed quilts, tropical quilts, and nature quilts and similar themed quilt top designs.

Print out and practice on 5-10 copies. Repetition is how you learn how to draw any feather type. Practice drawing them and filling a variety of quilt spaces, too,
Freehand quilters: I suggest you mark until you can quilt this design by memory. Now, when I quilt them free motion, I will only mark the spine as a guideline.
I hope you are enjoying my Feather Practice Series. If so, please leave me a comment. My motivation for providing this free series is to provide assistance to any machine quilters who needs encouragement in their own personal quilting journey. Happy Quilting, Carla Barrett
