 I have been practicing my feathers so I could add them to my FMQ repertoire. They are so much fun!

Here's the single feather wave I quilted on the border to my Le Jardin quilt a free embroidery design found at

Here are the drops on my king size sampler quilt. I used a single feather wave on the first blue border, a double feather wave on the outer blue border and designed a feather motif for the outer blue cornerstone to carry the hearts from the inner read border.
