Trying Something New

When I was at A Quilters Gathering at the beginning of the month I took a class with Sue Nickels on drawing fabulous feathers.  I decided to put to use what we learned and make a mini whole cloth quilt using feathers.

I'm still in the middle of quilting around the feathers, as you can see.  I'm hoping it will help make them pop even more.  I used a Kona grey, but I'm not sure which one and Superior Threads silver metalic thread.

Here's a picture of the sketched design next to the quilted one.  I sketched it out using tracing paper first before copying it onto the fabric and quilting it.

Here's a close up of one of the quarter sections. 

I needed to break up the work I was doing on the Storm at Sea and this was the perfect, quick project to do so. 


  1. Very pretty! Especially like the metallic thread you used. Really makes the feathers pop.
