I first quilted the feathers in Rainbows, tri-lobal polyester, in a blue variegated combo, going back and outlining them about 3/8″ apart in the same blue.
I continued the blue quilting, for the outside space apart from the feathers, surrounding them with varying free motion quilting motifs.
I used Masterpiece in blue for the bobbin thread. Worked beautifully! I used a commercial batik from my stash for the backing.
I couldn’t resist trying a little bit of ‘hot’ color, so I went with a solid orange, this time, a Ricky Tims Studio thread in a polyester, a 40 weight also, and for the ‘hyper quilting’ (as Patsy Thompson calls it), I used a variegated bright pink and orange combo in Rainbows once again.
I’m tickled with the results, really. Although I would like to experiment with different shapes… so I’m ready to get back to doing more feathers, and figuring out some more designs. If you’re interested in feathers you cannot go wrong buying any of the books or DVD’s from Patsy Thompson’s website. I learned what I know from her!!
So whatdaya think? Would you like to free motion quilt or play with this fabric? Or does it interest you at all? If so… would you like to win some? If so… then see below!
If not – then thank you for your input! I’m still looking for other types of leather fabrics… just haven’t had time to get to the stores or do searching on the internet. If you do, would you please let me know? I’d love to hear about it!
