My May Goal Done!


Wow--I haven't posted since the first of the month! I've been working outside on my gardens and other spring cleaning projects--that's my excuse! 
Orange Peel did get quilted though--finally! 

I was inspired to try quilting hooked feathers after watching this great Handi Quilter video: Feathers and Blocks with Vicki Hoth and Jamie Wallen. My brain seems to have an issue with quilting feathers, but the hooked feathers were actually fun to do !

The first bit of advice they gave was to practice drawing feathers everyday. I picked up a lined tablet at the dollar store and have been doing some practicing. I have to admit to not practicing every day, but try to do a page here and there (when I remember--lol!).

Orange Peel was my One Monthly Goal for May.

May OMG finish link-up is open!

  2. Your hooked feathers turned out very well. I will have to make time to watch that video.
    Practicing on paper does make a difference, in my experience--even if it isn't "every day." :)

  3. My goal for machine quilting is to learn how to do feathers in free form style. When I will find time, I don't have the answer to that.
