FMQ Challenge - Feb Feathers

 I did two sets of feathers.  One on my DSM and one on Long Arm.  I'm fairly comfortable doing feathers on my DSM but have only been at the long arm for a couple of months now.  I choose a new pattern that I had not sewn on either machine.  Used the same fabric and the same thread.  When I do feathers, I mark the spine and add a few registration marks that show the general shape of the feathers, very easy marking.  What do you think, can you tell which was done on the DSM and which was done on the long arm? 

Stop by SewCalGal and see how others are doing with the feathers.  And if you have seen it already, Diane Gaudynski  has a great tutorial up.  I have both of her books and use them on a regular basis.

  2. Beautiful Feathers! Both methods. But, which method did you like using? That is my question for you. I prefer long arm quilting myself. When I go back to sitting at the machine to do anything but cross hatching, I struggle to make the quilt move smoothly. ---sort of like patting your head, rubbing your tummy feeling. Gone are the days I sit at the machine quilting unless I can it better there.

  3. Your feathers are so well balanced and full - beautiful job! And, no, I couldn't tell which one was done on the DSM. Both are great.

  5. Beautiful job Sue! Seriously can't tell which is which. I'm just learning how to longarm so hopefully I'll be making gorgeous feathers likes these on it someday soon :*)
