Quilting Intense Feathers on the Grace Qnique 14+

It's time to quilt some feathers! This week I pulled out the Dream Goddess quilt and I'm machine quilting the intense feathers in the sky section of the quilt. What are intense feathers? Check out this video to find out!

As you can see, this involves a lot of travel stitching and speed control. I've waited to get back to Dream Goddess for a few months just to be sure I could use the Grace Qnique 14+ and not stitch wildly out of control on this special quilt.

The great news is the stitches look terrific on the front and back of the quilt and I couldn't be more pleased with how this is turning out! Yes, this is intense and there is a lot of thread filling in the quilt. I wouldn't do this for just any project, but only special quilts like this one.

Now I hate to stitch and run, but I have a costume to finish up and a festival to attend! Wish me luck!

Let's go quilt,

  1. wow the costume turned out great. No one could ever guess who the person behind the mask is. You need a visit to New Orleans ...

  2. Great video with plenty of tips and inspiration. Thank you. Your intense feathers are amazing. And, I absolutely love your dress. Works perfectly for a collective costume that is absolutely amazing. Great job!
