Final “Feather Follow-up Friday” on Saturday……….

Yup, the month has flown by, has it not? And we’ve had some wonderful feather-learning opportunities, yes?? I do hope you are continuing on your feather journey, cuz I certainly am!!!! Lisa demonstrated a flower/leafy feather that is possibly a more “do-able” feather….less formal and allowing for more individual personality input.

Today I’m featuring Wendy Sheppard/Ivory Spring who has been the single most influential inspiration for my quilting over the passed 5 years.049 I had the wonderful opportunity to meet up with her a couple of years ago when DH and I were on an East Coast trek.

Upon seeing her style, I just knew it would be a technique that would incorporate into my creative style seamlessly and it has! As I grew to know more about her as a person and blogger I found so many common interests we shared (sorry for the redundancy!). Sharing an intense interest in science, math,and music (classical piano) made it very clear why our approaches to the art of quilting would be so similar.

Her blog’s sidebar “Thread Talk” entries give numerous tutorials explaining how she achieves the beautiful graceful feather renderings. Please, see here, here, here, and here. That last link will become more obvious this coming Tuesday!!!!! Ah………that tease, again!!!!!

My feather versions are shown here: Leah's Christmas stocking 001


Table runners-b'day gifts 001f

Carnation quilt 004

024 I’m sure by now you get the idea. And, yes, I took my own advice and practiced, practiced, practiced….and still do for there’s always more that may be learned. Precisely what’s so exciting about this art!!!!

In today’s post, Wendy gives a hint of an upcoming special event …….coming this Tuesday, March 3rd. Yes, I have a small part to play so, please, stop by her blog and mine on that day for the reveal.
