A Quick and Beautiful Design for Filling Large Spaces!

Are you looking for a beautiful design to free motion quilt into large areas of your quilt? This paisley feather is surprisingly easy to make and does not require marking.

In fact, the free-form design can easily be altered to fit whatever space you want to cover, and will provide a beautiful finishing touch. Watch Angela Walters demonstrate how to do that in the video below.

Simply follow her easy instructions for moving around a space until the area you want to fill is done. The secret is echo quilting, which makes this design very easy to do.

You may want to try one or two test feathers before you move to the quilt. With a bit of practice you’ll soon be making them with ease. And, as you’ll see, the stitching and spacing do not need to be perfect to be beautiful.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
