An Abundance of Feathers

An Abundance of Feathers

Posted by Lynn Koolish on Jun 13th 2017

Feathers, feathers, feathers—who knew there were so many different ways to quilt feathers? There’s a feather for every size, shape, and place on your quilt. 

And modern? You may wonder, “What’s a modern feather?” As Natalia Bonner says, “I love traditional feathers and have a great appreciation for them. In this book, however, I’m sharing my ideas on breaking away from tradition—being creative with your feathers and letting go of perfection.” It just doesn’t matter whether or not all your feathers are exactly the same size.

In Visual Guide to Free-Motion Quilting Feathers, Natalia starts with the basics, then follows up with 68 designs for you to use on any machine—from domestic to mid-arm to longarm.

Each feather is accompanied by step-by-step photos showing you exactly how to stitch, such as this Curl Pod Feather.

Or how about feathers for your borders, like this Quad Swag Feather?

In no time, you’ll be creating your own feathered masterpieces like Natalia’s.
