SewCalGal's 2012 FMQ Challenge - December

December challenge tutorial was brought to us by the amazing Patsy Thomson. Checkout her tutorial for free-form feathers at SewCalGal's FMQ Challenge.

I was making a baby quilt and tried her continuous feathers. Checkout these pictures showing the continuous feathers. These are a modified feathers using Leah Day's swriling petals FMQ design. I had previous blogged about in March 2012.
