I've had an ongoing computer problem that I've been unable to solve over the last few weeks so I broke down and paid for technical support from McAfee today. After 4 hours the problem still isn't solved and will probably take up a good chuck of my day tomorrow as I try again.
I had to be sitting here at the computer but most of the time they were controlling my computer remotely so I pulled out a new quilting book Quilting Possibilities...freehand Filler Patterns (Golden Threads) (Paperback) by Sue Patten and practiced my drawing.
I can't draw well at all but I find that if I draw things over and over until I've mastered them, I can quilt them. It may not look like it from this drawing but I can do fairly decent freehand feathers BUT I have a problem with quilting feathers that need to fill up a space - where they have to get larger and smaller. I really want to use some of these designs - do any of you have any tips to keeping the shape of my feather when stretching them out to fill the space?
I also tried some ferns.
