As you may have read, I’m a novice in the world of free motion quilting with the recent cushion cover being my test design. Wanting something a little more fancy for the actual quilt I’ve been searching for inspiration and found this blog post via Pinterest.
Geta, a Romanian quilter shows how simple it is to quilt a feather pattern on a hexagon pieced quilt… of course what looks simple doesn’t always turn out that way!
Anyway, inspired by this I printed out a sheet of interlocking hexagons and sketched out the design.
In Geta’s blog she uses different colour threads for the feathers and the circular centres which looks great, however her design is on white fabric so the quilting is the main feature rather than the patchwork.
I’m considering using two colours of thread and also adding a design in the currently blank spaces, but before those decisions need to be made I will start with quilting the feathers.
