The first is the Feathers in the Wind Quilt pattern which includes the feather paper piecing printouts and instructions for making the quilt top, including cutting and construction diagrams. The pattern has both the Textured feather shown on the quilt top, as well as the Simple feather designed for fast construction, or those less sure of their foundation paper piecing skills. The printouts are shaded to help guide you in fabric placement.
The second pattern Feathers. It is just the feathers for foundation paper piecing. It includes both the Textured feather as well as the Simple feather, and both are offered in three sizes. There are so many projects these could be incorporated into – bags, zipper pouches, book covers, decorative wall hangings or design your own quilt.
No directions are given for foundation paper piecing in either pattern, but I do offer some helpful tips for squaring up the two sections of your feather before sewing them together. There are plans to offer some foundation piecing tips and instructions in the future, but for now YouTube is a great resource for all things crafty related if you’re looking to learn how to foundation paper piece. I also teach an Intro to Foundation Paper Piecing class periodically at Modern Domestic in Portland if you happen to live locally.
I have never had a pattern get so many requests to be written. I am looking forward to seeing all of the wonderful things created with these feathers, and hope to share more of what I make with them as well. They go together so quickly and have such a lovely impact in all of the pieces I incorporate them into, I hope you find that’s true, too. As always, I’d love to see what you make!
