Quilting feathers

I have been trying to get a whole bunch of table runners quilted that I have pieced earlier this year. These have been quilted for a couple weeks but we have been so busy that I hadn't taken time to get their picture taken.
Amy over at Amy's Free Motion Quilting is talking about and showing feathers this month so I thought that would be a good place to start-my runners with feathers.

These 3 runners all have the same freehand feather quilted with my Nolting longarm.  Judi over at Green Fairy Quilts has a video on how to stitch these out. At first I couldn't get the hang of it, but after some practice at drawing them out, then stitching them, it became fun and easier the more I did them the more I liked them!

Come back tomorrow and I will post the whole runner and also show the same pattern with different quilting on it and different fabrics.

Linking up with Connie and Lorna along with Amy(link above).

And just for fun-here is DH and I kayaking on the 4th of July in our new kayaks!  Our son and daughter in law went with us-so much fun-and he spotted this gorgeous Bald Eagle.

I appreciate your taking time to leave comments. I try to respond to them all, however, if you are a no-reply blogger I am not able to. If you would like to fix that try this link for help. http://www.sewathomemummy.com/2013/01/are-you-no-reply-blogger.html
