I love to quilt feathers. I think every quilter finds a quilting pattern they just have to use whenever possible. For me that pattern is feathers.
Today I finished quilting a quilt based on a pattern from Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting, January/February 2011 magazine. The original quilt is called China Girl. The quilt had a lot of different shaped background areas that I just had to fill with feathers.
A medallion feather for this spot.
A funky feather in a straight line for this area.
And a feather in this box that looks an awful lot like a flower.
Of course I did add a continuous feather on the border. I will show you the finished quilt when I get the binding on it.
For those of you who are quilting feathers, remember, they are just half a heart.
