Feathers can be quilted in many different ways, and no one style is better than another. Use the feather style that suits your quilt project and your skill level. With a little practice you’ll soon be feathering every quilt in sight!
The first step in conquering feather styles is to determine if your feathers look better stitched from the root of the vein up to the tip, or vice versa . While you can execute nearly every feather method in either direction, some methods, such as the “over the top” style, will be much easier to quilt from the root to the tip.
