I’ve finally started to stitch the feather pattern onto the actual quilt. I’m using the Golden Threads quilting paper, with my feather pattern traced on using regular pencil. Here is the pattern pinned in place on the sashing strip.
Here it is stitched, with the paper still in place.
The paper is removed to reveal the stitched feather pattern.
And here is a close-up of the stitching. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out.
I’ve now finished stitching two of the sashing strips, and have 5 more to go. Then I have to design a modified version of the feather for the larger outer sashing strips.
