This is the pattern I used. It looks so different done in soft earth tones.
This quilting design is based on the methods in Meandering Magic by Suzanne Earley. I'd never done it before, and I was pretty happy with how it turned out.
You can draw a stem line freehand, but I drew one out on paper first and then traced it. The feathers are done freehand and I promise you, this looks so cool.
