I have always been a bit shy about attempting feathers. I think this is the result of when you let that voice in the back of your head tell you your feathers will never look as good as so-and-so's. We have some very talented quilters in our area who seem like they can all do feathers in their sleep. It's intimidating, I'll admit!
But Alyce gave me her version of the Patriots in Petticoats pattern and asked for feathers in the border and the log cabin areas:
This quilt as featured as a Block of the Month through various quilt shops, and it is quite large, but beautiful!
I started with the borders and the log cabin areas and filled those with feathers going in opposing directions from the center.
Then I added in single feathers in one direction in the smaller inner border.
Thanks Alyce! This quilt was so rewarding to do. Thank you for letting me finish it off for you!
