Diane Gaudynski said "make feathers" !!

What a great quilty Sunday I have had - and watched a great disaster movie, too - called "Contagion" - for the life of me I don't know why I like disaster movies so much, but I do... this one was great - lots of people dying, threat to civilization, you know.  Great stuff!

So today I sat down and made my first attempt at feathers, as per the Freemotion quilting challenge.  I had my very real doubts... seemed to me that echoed feathers free-handed were just too difficult for month two of that challenge -  but, Diane Gaudynski seemed to think we could do it - so off I went...

 I made feathers!!!!  They are a long way from perfect - but now I know the basic idea, I can just practice them on some charity quilts until I get better - thank you, Diane Gaudynski!!

I finished up this little charity quilt - for the Sunshine Yahoo Guild - someone else made the top..

And now I'm going to settle down for the evening with the Gigantic Hexagon quilt... 

Give more days and there will be another weekend - hooray!

Good for you for trying feathers!!! While mine won't ever be perfect, I've found that the word "difficult" did not apply, once I got going. From feathers, you do vines, spirals, weeds, swoops, tendrils, curliques, ribbons, etc., all seemily based on the feather start, which are not so impossible!!!
