My main problem with this challenge was the feather's that I drew. I used a 0.9mm ceramic lead pencil and the grey/green fabric is a piece of Cherrywood fabric I have had in the stash for some time.
They are too fat, and too far a part. As I was quilting them, I didn't stay exactly on the line and was able to improved them slightly.
After I did the feathers I changed to a lighter color thread and stippled the remaining light grey area. The stippling really highlighted the feathers. I am pretty please with the stitching - as I do more and more free-motion the consistency of the stitch size is improving.
I am trying to make something out of every tutorial this year - my studio is filled to the rafters and another sample will not fit. So after I finished the quilting this piece, I turned it into a notebook cover which I will be selling at our Member's Boutique at the Cobblestone Quilter's Guild Quilt Show in two weeks.
