Today I am showing you one of my all time favorite quilting designs, the Interlocking El Dorado from Full Line Stencil. This is one of the easiest feather designs and a perfect one to start with if you are trying to learn how to quilt feathers.
I tried and tried to quilt feathers for years and they never turned out right, but when I tried this stencil I was able to stitch beautiful feathers for the first time. It’s a combination of an easy feather paired with a simple swirl and having a line to follow that makes all the difference.
I continue to go back to this design when I finish my quilts because I love how it looks. We also have a video showing this design on your home sewing machine, but I bought GoPro so we could start showing you some quilting tips and tricks on the longarm as well.
This video is packed with tips and tricks on how to use the Pounce Pad and Full Line Stencil together, how to mark your quilt top on the longarm, and how to make this fabulous design come out right. I hope you enjoy it and it inspires you to try something new.
