I just completed 5 weeks of Feather Boot Camp with Suzanne Earley. As you saw in my previous post, I've been doodling feathers on paper...for weeks! I finally had a chance to load a piece of muslin and actually stitch those feather doodles! Keep in mind, these are just doodles!! I had a lot of fun, messing up, over stitching, backtracking, creating potato chips (a term for unsightly feathers) etc.....It's hard to be serious stitching onto an open piece of muslin. I need some boundaries! Like an actually quilt top with squares, rectangles and triangles to confine and control my feathers!!
the entire piece....quite the mess....but oh, what fun!!!
