Making the perfect machine quilted feather feels a bit intimidating. If you are anything like me, it is frustrating figuring out where to start. I knew I wanted to stitch beautiful feather blocks, borders, sashings and fills, but I had no experience and no clue where to start. Even watching a YouTube video, though it showed gorgeous feathers it did not explain how to stitch feathers or give me the techniques. They said "just do this"....really? How do I do that?
You may be wondering:
- What kind of machine do I need?
- What sort of experience should I have?
- Do I need a special thread, needle or batting?
- And most of all...why don't my feathers look like the videos?
When I first started out, I knew I wanted my feathers to be perfect, but I could not find the pathway to those gorgeous feathers. I was determined to learn how to create the most beautiful feathered hearts, wreaths, blocks and borders that would be fun to learn and a joy to stitch without ripping out all the time. I also wanted to impress my family and potential customers...no time for failures and unstitching.
But now that I have had the practice and experience, my customers request feathers for their show quilts and my machine quilting friends ask to learn how. In fact, I've been asked about it so many time I decided to create this course to share with you.
This course is for you if:
You want to learn how to machine quilt like a pro but don't know where to start.
You don't have a lot of experience machine quilting feathers, but you're really excited to learn!

These feathers are so much nicer looking than traditional feathers plus I have freedom to do ANYTHING I want to do with them! When I return from England I have a twin sized quilt that I plan to do since I now have my confidence in my ability to make wonderful Hooked on Feathers. Can’t wait for the compliments.
Thanks Sally. I am so crazy about Hooked on Feathers technique. I have only had my machine about 6 months. Lately I have been doing Hooked on Feathers on pre-printed holiday panels to practice and they look wonderful. Our president of the guild just bought a machine and was having some problems so she came over. I set up a sample for her and showed her how to do Hooked on Feathers. She stopped on the way home and bought the book and was very very excited. Her very first feather set looked fabulous!
