Welcome to my Feather Practice #1
Would you like to learn how to quilt beautiful feathers like shown below?
Many machine quilters, especially when new, struggle to learn how to quilt beautiful feathers. Other quilters, including many experienced professionals, may be intimidated by quilting free motion feathers. I am here to tell you that learning how to quilt feathers is well within your reach. It is for you that I decided to create my Feather Practice Worksheet Series.
Practice lesson file Part 1 is presented in .PDF format. You will need a free download, Adobe Reader, to open, read and print out each worksheet. I encourage you to print out at least 3 pages of this lesson for practice. I believe that practicing each Part over and over is essential to obtain Feather Mastery!
Feather Practice Worksheet, Part 1: Freehand Feather
We start the series with a basic freehand feather. To assist with learning the steps, you can trace over the light gray feathers using a smooth rolling pen. Print out multiple copies of this .pdf file.
Hope you have enjoyed this free Lesson. If so, please leave me a comment below.
What Happened to all your free pdf files?
Currently, I am re-writing and expanding my Feather Workshop Series into an eBook format. There was such demand for learning feathers that I decided to design more lessons and worksheets on drawing and quilting feathers. Keep watching for more details
Have fun! Carla Barrett

I miss all your free feather lessons. I hope you put them up again soon.
Hi Missy, Now that I am taking a break- about to head off sailing in the Caribbean and Beyond, I will have time to finish my Feather Mastery Workbook. Hope to get to it soon. Life does have a way of interrupting ones plans- and often in a good way. Here is a post to help explain why my life changed so suddenly- https://featheredfibers.wordpress.com/2014/11/19/adoption/ Take care!
