Feathers, and Technology
Excellent video - it takes a few moments to load, but it's 8 minutes long! Since the video gives me the option of "Embedding", that's what I'm going to do. This came from Youtube.com, a new-found toy. I searched videos on "Quilting" and found this one from Sharon Schambers. Until recently, I didn't know who she was. This is good advertising, isn't it? I would love to have HEARD her instructions, and it goes too fast, but her feathers are amazing, even without hearing her voice.
Many machine quilters wanna be's think feathers are just too "hard" ... frankly, those curvy lines, and swoops and swirls are not as difficult as you think. The curvy lines hide inaccuracies much better than straight lines. Note, that when she begins, she only does one single motif at a time. Obviously, she's experienced.
When I first started reading blogs, I was all gah-gah at the technical talent bloggers had, and then learned how to blog, post, and insert graphics. Now, I am all gah-gah at videos, and want to learn that! (Oh yeah, then I'd better have something to actually video!)
