Feather Doodle, Day One

The February FMQ tutorial hosted by SewCalGal was posted today.  Diane Gaudynski is the featured expert.  She provides an amazing wealth of information about her process.  I have decided to spend some time practicing in pen before attempting her lessons with thread.  Her feathers are so well formed.  I would love to be able to master them.  I have become somewhat comfortable quilting them my way, but really need to develop balance and finesse.  She echoes each feather with a small channel between each.  I have become used to stitching on the shared line.  I want to develop a repertoire of styles.

So here is day one of practice.

I think I will number the pages I doodle so I can look at the progression over the first part of the month.  During the last half of the month, I will practice on fabric sandwiches.
