Bringing in the New Year with feathers!

Happy 2014!  How did you bring in your New Year where you are??? I slow stitched the New Year in personally :) 

Hi All I am Kathi ... and I love hand quilting!  It is my fave part of taking an idea and turning it into a quilt!  And I am super excited to be a new contributor here at Celebrate Hand Quilting blog!

I brought in the new year hand quilting these adorable feathers!

I traced them from a template I found at an online retailer that looks like this....

I used a fabric pencil to mark with.

I personally wanted pointed ends on both ends so I altered it as I drew it and just flipped the template around to get that gorgeous point.

I had 49 feathers to mark on this quilt and got them all marked in less than a day :)
