Start with a line for the spine
Add a lobe at the bottom, click to see arrow for direction.
Then do one the other side, cross over the spine and do a new lobe up the first side
Do this until the feather is finished. Sometimes you need more on one side than the other.
Then go just outside the feather with a line. Try to get it the same distance away from the feather as the gaps between the lobes.
Then start your little circles from the bottom. They are just like a series of little e's but you keep the straight bits on your previous line and the loops of the e's circular.
Go all the way round
Then take another line outside the feather just touching the edges of the e's or little circles.
On the test piece I put an extra line round the outside like this but on Heide's quilt I've decided to stop before this line.
