I started by drawing a spine and then filling the space around it.
The top image was started with a V shaped spine. The middle image with a curl for a spine. And the bottom image a shallow curve for a spine. They all work but definitely give a different feel to the spine of the feather.
For the last two squares I used a very gentle curve and then using a feather as a spine.
So....if I was to do it again, which would I choose? I like all of them, so I suppose it depends on what shape I want to emphasize. Until next week when we'll get into rectangles!
I hope you get to quilt today!
