"Butterfly Feathers - Free Motion Quilting with beautiful Feather Designs"

(some free motion quilting experience)

Learn the techniques to free motion quilt beautiful feather designs. Sue has used
the feather design successfully on many of her quilts. The feather is the ideal
design for free motion quilting and is easier than you think. Practice the techniques used to achieve beautiful, consistent and smooth stitches. Then work on your own “Butterfly Feather” project! Sue’s original feather design is ready to use in a kit that will include the pre-printed top, two practice squares, batting, backing, binding, sewing machine needle and thread. Fall in love with Feathers!
