I finally did it!!! I got up the nerve to meander feather a clients quilt and I am really happy with the results!
I have done a similar design on one of my own quilts with backtracked feather but I wanted to learn how to do this with an open design feather. So I put a piece of blue fleece on my machine and practised. I'm glad I did as the two styles of feather quilt out very differently and I kept wanting to quilt the open style backwards. But I got the pattern in my head by the time I was finished the fleece.
So once I took off my practise piece I put Rae's Popsicle Sticks quilt on and just went for it. I used a soft purple King Tut thread on top and a purple Bottom Line in the bobbin. It quilted up beautifully on the batik fabrics.
I dyed the backing for this quilt too. Rae brought over a piece of white tone on tone fabric and she asked for a light purple.
