Freehand Feathers and Stash Busting!

I needed to practice my freehand feathers before I jump in on a beautiful quilt of Laura's.  I can make a feather, I just needed to practice the sizing, movement and "feel" of the overall feathers.  My first instinct was to grab some solid muslin and have yet an
other practice piece with no purpose.  But then I thought, use up some of that backing fabric you've got laying around!  Bust some stash!!  So, I grabbed a cute piece of baby fabric with some cuddly minkie-type fleece and voila, this is what I came up with.

Wow, that sure turned out nice. I really need to practice that too. I've wanted to try a quilt with all over feathers but I'm so afraid. Thanks for sharing your practice piece. It's gorgeous. I hope you bind it and use it.

This makes me wish I had a machine! I'm not sure I could duplicate this by hand like I'm doing with my star quilt featuring on my blog tomorrow.
So many fun patterns to chose from!
