|start off with a big meander across the whole quilt|
|if your getting to far down on the spine...fit in a smaller petal...that will get you back up on the spine|
|if you have a hole...go ahead and take a petal way out to fill that in|
|remember to leave space for your feathers as you come around|
|to help your feathers interlock for the next row..I will a slight hole for a petal to fill in|
|when coming to a turn...follow the stem up and around then hook to the last petal|
|I will try to reverse the directions of my feathers for each quilting pass..gives it a more inconsistent look|
Thanks Deb..for letting me use your quilt for these pictures!!
Of course these are not my own ideas..and for the life of me I can't remember the name of the Quilter I learned how to do the big meander and fill in with the feather...I will post that when I remember? And Sally Terry is the first I know of who came up with the hook feather..but what I have come to find out over the last few years of doing this, is that even though we may all do the same thing...we all have a style of our own.
