This is a small quilt made by one of our guild members for our Community Service group, which will be donated. I love quilting these quilts for a variety of reasons. First, it is a way I can give back a little, and I receive other benefits as well. It is a chance to practice and try out new designs. That being said, I still take care to do my best, even if it is the first time with a design. And, that being said, I find my weakness in new designs, and can practice those skills further.
So, I wanted to try the free motion feather swirl designed by the Green Fairy. I will admit here and now that I had trouble with this one. Judi makes it look so easy, but it took me pages and pages of trial and a lot of error with pen and paper to get a good feel for this one. I think I am on my way, but there is room for improvement.
I have more empty space than I would like, but over all I am pleased with the results.
This is my "own" design for a border using Judi's feather swirl. I like it, and with more practice I will love it.
Thanks for reading, I appreciate it.
