Here is the 8th part in my Feather Practice Series. This series of handouts are intended for newer quilters or for anyone wanting to brush up on feather practice. I happen to love feathers for feminine quilts, and feel that this is a wonderful skill to have in your quilting tool box!
Today, we are focusing on feathering spines or small borders. Right click to download my PDF file. Note that you will need a PDF reader to view this file.
The second design in the handout I have used before in my quilting. Here is a photo from the back of a quilt, but you can see this feather being used:

Hope this gives you additional ideas for using this feather design on your quilts. If you use any of my handouts on one of your quilts, I would love to see the results! In case you missed an earlier Feather Series, here are the links for each part:
Happy Feathering, everyone! Let me know if you would like more of the feather series, too, by leaving a comment. Hugs, Carla
