This challenge is a great idea!!  I have enjoyed JoAnn's tutorials and have gotten some great tips from them.  I had already started quilting my basket quilt shown below.  I sandwiched it in two pieces so I wouldn't have so much quilt to wrestle with and I have all the blocks quilted in half of the quilt.  I want to put feathers in the border and I've never done them before.

Here is my practice piece from yesterday.  Kind of wonky.  Some of them look okay, but others are too long or something.  But, it's my first one, so I'm okay with it!

Looks good...When I did the FM challenge last year, I really really wanted to learn how to do feathers. It was on about day 4, that it started to come together for me. I'm very comfortable with feathers now, but not much of anything else. ha ha.... I'm going to start my FM challenge From Apr 25 - May 8th.

I think it is very pretty. I am a newbie so I am nervous.

A bit wonky, but you have a great start! IT will click for you in no time. I wish my feathers were as good as yours! It will be fun to watch your progress!
