I thought I would share a few of my feather quilting practice for anyone needing to learn or improve their feather skills. I am starting with my freehand feather handout #1 (pdf), shown here:
barrettfeatherpractice1 (right click to download this pdf file)
Directions: Print out 5-10 copies of the handout, and trace over all gray lines. Next practice in the spaces provided. This practice sheet covers drawing a freehand feather, feathering a simple spine, a curved spine, filling a space with feathers, and turning a corner while feathering.
This is a first post in a series for improving feather technique. If you like it, and want to encourage me to write more, please leave a message below. Thanks, Carla Barrett
