December's bonus free motion quilting at SewCalGal was given by Teri Lucus. It was on using a software program Kaleidoscope Kreator 3 Software and its feathered package. It looks like it would be fun to use. Teri/SewCalGal provided a pdf to print out to do the challenge, but I don’t have the extra ink. So I printed out the outline drawing and then enlarged the print. I was going to use it to do my piece. But then I decided to go back and read the tutorial again. In the very last part it has handout with instructions to create feathers I used this and folded my piece of paper for a snowflake. Then I drew my feather on one sixth of the snowflake.
Then I took my fabric and folded it into quarters and pressed it. Next, I took and traced the section on my fabric six times giving me a beautiful spiral of feathers. Not exactly sure it is a kaleidoscope of feathers. Then layered and quilted my piece.
This is the front with some of
the tracing showing.
Back of my piece.
Thank you SewCalGal and Teri.
I have had a blast with this tutorial.
