Easiest Feather EVER! How to quilt an overall feather swirl combo from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

Feathers are one of the most intimidating free motion quilting designs to master and for years I tried and failed to quilt them. That is until I found the Interlocking El Dorado #50003 stencil from Full Line Stencil.

This stencil is the perfect combination of feathers and swirls so you can start off with an easy to master swirl, then quilt a few feathers, and then go back to the swirl. The combination, plus having clear lines to follow, meant I was able quilt feathers for the very first time!

Check out the video and then give it a try ...

How to Quilt Garden Gate Feathers + Free Practice Worksheet! from Quilted Joy

A couple weeks ago you guys got a peek at Pam’s adorable Paper Doll Quilt for her first granddaughter. I had so much fun quilting this quilt for Pam because it’s just so dang cute! There were so many opportunities for me to try lots of different quilting designs. I really got to play with my Millie longarm machine and I think we all need that sometimes. In addition to lots of fun background fillers, I also quilted a curling and undulating feather border that I’m now in love with. I wanted to share a closer look ...

Beginner’s Guide to Machine Quilting: Quilting Feathers, Part 1 from Quilted Joy

One of the techniques many new (and experienced) longarm quilters want to jump into is quilting feathers. Who can blame them? Feathers are a classic and beautiful quilting design. Unfortunately, they can be a little challenging. I’ve heard a few quilters say they simply can’t do feathers.

The Quilt That Kicked My Butt from Emily's Quilting

Machine Quilting Example

Creating longarm quilting designs for quilts is enjoyable to me.  When I’m given the opportunity to “quilt as desired”, I’m even happier.  And that is why this quilt stumped me.  Absolutely just stymied my mind….
