Feathers and swirls

Learning new free motion quilting designs is always fun, especially when you see that what you where nervous about or scared to try out is not even close to being hard.

I took Angela Walter's Free motion quilting with feathers class on craftsy, and after watching ALL the videos I jumped right in and started quilting Kayleigh's new (but old) quilt.  Its made with Kayleigh old flannel blankets so it already has that 'used' look, and I love it!

 



I really like feathers and I am more than certain I will try it in many different ways.

Linking up with Leah Day's FMQ Friday @ The Free Motion Quilting Project.

Happy quilting

As always, Marelize.... You are doing an amazing job. Hope Kayleigh loves it, too!

Rhonda Phillips said...

Beautiful!!! I purchased that class also but haven't watched all the videos yet.

Karin said...

I love this...did you do the feathers first and then the swirls or is this one continuous design? You did a fantastic job...I imagine Angela Walters class would be excellent. I bought her book 'Freemotion Quilting' last year and have learned heaps from it.

Your quilting is just beautiful. You have really learned how to handle all of that quilt bulk on your home machine. Do you have a super slider? I think I need one.

Sherry said...

Lovely! Great job without a longarm.

Leslie's Itchin to be Stitchin said...

Wow...that is amazing. When I first looked at your pictures I thought you had done it on a long arm machine...kudos!

Renee said...

It looks great! I love the combination of feathers and swirls!

Kelly Vetch said...

So beautiful! You should keep that yourself to always have a piece of your babies. :-)

Stunning. You are so good at fmq, it's almost scarey! How nice to have a memory quilt, I bet it's really soft.

I am loving the modern feathers!! Nice job :-)

Whoo Hoo! Beautiful! I purchased that class and haven't started it yet. I hope I can do as well as you. How inspiring!

Alyx Patterson said...

That is absolutely beautiful!!! It looks so soft!

What a lovely addition to that sweet quilt! You've done an amazing job with those feathers. I have also purchased the class & now just need to make the time to watch it all! Thanks for the inspiration!

Quiltin' Jenny said...

Absolutely beautiful! And what a great idea to use an old flannel baby blanket. It must be so soft!

visiting from sew many ways link up. This is gorgeous. I am impressed with your quilting, I keep sticking to the same old stuff as I know how to do it. I should branch out a bit and try new. Well done for doing that.

Angie said...

WOW I can't believe you just started quilting last year---you've done gorgeous work in such a short amount of time. :)

Your FMQ on this quilt is AWESOME! I have Angela's Craftsy course, too, but don't yet feel confidant enough to do a real project. Your photos are an inspiration to try a real project soon.
Thanks for sharing!

It's so pretty, and it just makes me want to snuggle it. Your quilting is fantastic!

Laura said...

This makes me want to cover up with it as those blankets are soft. I love the feathers. On my BOM I am going to branch out you keep making everything look easy.

Silvana said...

Great feathers! You've given that flannel so much texture, it's going to look amazing!

That's an amazing job :)

Danielle Hudson said...

Those are some beautiful feathers. Is it any harder to FMQ with flannel?

Teresa Higgins said...

Gorgeous quilting!

Nanette said...

Wow, that's beautiful! I have both of Angela's FMQ classes on Craftsy, but I haven't watched them yet. You've inspired me to move them to the top of the list!
