Check out this cool background free motion quilting filler called paisley feathers.
I did some practicing and it's really easier than it looks.
I think this may become my February prayer flag - the word flow fits this design somehow
And what better background design for a bird? This hermit thrush is almost done, just need to hand sew the binding which will be today. I have the day off and with wind chills today being -20, I see a day of quilting and a big pot of soup in order:-)
Here's a bird in a bowl (or should I say nest) ready to be born ;-)
So try the paisley feather if you've never done it - you will love it
