Feather: Making a Quilt New | Amy’s creative side Quilting

I’ve made many quilts over the years, but very few have been made new. feather is a quilt design that I made for the first time in 2014 as a pattern for Quilty magazine. It has all of my favorite things, oversized blocks, simplicity and negative space too!

The large feather blocks are made up of half-square triangular units, and the throw size is only made up of three blocks. When I template I added a queen size quilt that takes eight feather blocks and still has negative space. When using grunge fabrics, the quilt has more depth than when using solid fabrics.

When I decided to quilt, the interlocking shapes won out. I love how the circles add another level of dimension without sacrificing detail. Of course the texture is so beautiful too! I chose a soft aqua thread for quilting because I knew it would go better with the colorful feather shapes.

The original quilt was made with my first fabric collection for Moda Fabrics – Modern Neutrals. The resulting quilt is very soothing and although the fabrics are not available, the colors can be used as inspiration for yours feather Ceiling. When quilting this version, I used rulers to outline the feather shapes. Then add random lines across the negative space.

My quill quilt is one of the few that I finished in the middle of the coronavirus quarantine. I’ve found it helpful to focus on one project that I can complete instead of worrying about all the things I can’t change. Get a paper or PDF sample in my shop and start your quill quilting today!
