If you follow the bi-annual happenings of quilt market, then you probably remember when the queen of craftiness herself showed up in this feathered frock when she introduced her Field Study fabric line. Oh, how the internet crafting world was all a flurry afterwards with various interpretations of her free feathers quilt project... and all with good reason. The pattern is fantastic!
There are various ways that you can make the pattern, depending on personal quilting preferences. One could use traditional piecing styles, the paper piecing method, or my all time favorite... freezer paper applique. I had fun making this pillow using snippits from Dowry and Pretty Potent, on a Chambray Denim background, and a little hand-stitching to make the feathers pop.
I thought it might be fun to share a few of my favorite projects that I found featuring the fabulous feather pattern:
1. Ms. Craftiness herself booth shot 2. Ants to Sugar invites you to find her mistake... mistake or no mistake, I love it anyway! 3. Grace and Favour mixes arrows (free pattern on the blog) and feathers 4. Badskirt's dark background quilt is stunning, and the backing is amazing too! 5. Field Study 6. I love the paper pieced birds that Sewing Wilde added to her feathers 7. Another great mix of feathers and arrows... and amazing quilting from Schnig-Schnag (german) 8. Three simple feathers with various low volume space from Blue Elephant Stitches - fantastic! 9. Quilts by Emily, where Denyse Schmidt meets meets arrows & HST's 10. Olivia Jane Handcrafted features the Field Study collection in her quilt. 11. Modern charity quilt that NW Ohio Modern Quilt Guild created 12. Blocks from quilting bee members helped Charm About You finish her dream quilt.
What about you... have you made any feather projects yourself? Leave a link... I'd love to see!
