I decided to try following a marked design for feathers instead of free form and came across a great website on my quest for inspiration. It seems quite a few of us are into trying feathers for the first time or improving our feather skills so I thought I would pass it along. It is called Forest Quilting by Pat Adams of Minnesota. She has 45+ feather quilting motifs to print out, along with patterns, links etc. Here is a picture of one of her designs. Isn't it just so perfectly "feathery"?
