How to Free Motion Quilt Funky Feathers

We are finishing off the year with one last free motion quilting motif! I love feathers, they are versatile and work great on so many different designs. They can be super intimidating though! Especially when talking about traditional free motion feathers. It feels like things have to be perfect. If you want to sew feathers, but need more freedom, this is the perfect motif to jump in with.  My favorite part of these feathers is how forgiving they are. Petals aren't the same size? Perfect! Adds more character and helps fill spaces. Didn't travel back perfectly on your previous stitch...

Our first project and focal project, was to take a couple patterns from our I Spy book and blow...

Calm Lagoon Blog Tour by Sherry Shish

When Sherry shared her latest fabric collection we jumped on the opportunity to sew with it. Our absolute favorite place in the world is the beach and these batiks capture everything good about it! Of course, we wanted to make a full quilt and also showcase as many of the prints as we could. My favorite thing about this collection is that not only are they are wide range of blue and green shades, but she has the perfect balance of tones. You get darks, mediums, and lights, making the final project just come to life! We paired the prints...
