I finally decided what to quilt between my feathers which are quilted with perle #8...feathers!
I had some spools of Coats and Clarks hand quilting thread left over from my Pickle Dish quilt that was close in color to the feathers in the fabric so decided to use it.
I had originally tried quilting some straight lines but didn't like how they looked so ripped out those stitches and started on the feathers. I like how they look.
I'm using this stencil and a mechanical pencil for marking.
Feathers in the quilt were made with lots of leftover strings mostly cut from the sides of quilt backings.
