This is one of the projects I wanted to start (and finish!) this year – Loose Feathers by Blackbird Designs. It was originally released in 2011 in three separate pamphlets: Summer, Autumn, and Winter. I picked up all three at Quilt Festival this past fall from The Silver Needle booth. I just love visiting their booth every year during Quilt Festival and looking at all the goodies!
The chart calls for using Cresent Colors and Gentle Arts thread, but I chose to go with regular old DMC thread. Only because I am lazy and it is easy for me to find and I have almost every color. I went to my local needlework store and picked up a piece of 32-count Mushroom Lugana.
Here is my progress after a few days of stitching:
I have enjoyed stitching this chart so far. I always begin stitching in the middle of a pattern so I am currently stitching the birds in the “Autumn” chart.
