Easy Feather Border – How to quilt a modern feather border with stencils

Feathers are one of the most intimidating free motion quilting designs to master and for years I tried and failed to quilt them. That is until I tried Full Line Stencils. With the designs, I can easily follow along curves to create beautiful, consistent feathers that look fabulous.

The Flurry of Feathers #50030 Stencil is an easy, large feather that is perfect for borders or an all over design. At 7-inches wide, this feather has large sections, minimal backtracking and no central spine, making it a great easy, starter feather for anyone looking to master this elusive free motion quilting design.

I normally am TERRIBLE at quilting feathers free hand. And to prove how easy the stencils are to use, I quilted the Flurry of Feathers stencil for the first time in front of an audience at a demo at our brick and mortar shop. The feather was darn near perfect. For this video, I am quilting the design for the second time, to show you just how easy it is to master.

Check out the video and then give it a try and you can master feathers too!
