I signed up for a class at Quilt BC with Elizabeth Spannring called "Focus on Feathers". This little quilt on the left is the project we worked on. Before starting on marking our quilt with the feather design, we had a little bit of a trunk show by Elizabeth. Her whole-cloth quilts are amazing. Check her quilts out at http://www.elizabethspannring.com/
We used stencils to mark our patterns onto our fabrics. I brought a dark red tone on tone and the blue marker didn't show, so I ended up using a piece of pale yellow fabric for my top.

|So far, so good!|

Look for a few feathers and other designs on upcoming quilts - it takes a bit longer than the free-hand meandering patterns I do right now, but I think it will add a whole new dimension to my quilts!
