Several years ago, when I was quilting full time and much more active in the quilting community, I taught an online class that I called Feather Boot Camp. I had big plans to turn the handouts in to a book and release it, but life happened. Those videos and handouts have been kicking around all this time, and I’ve decided it’s time to let them out.
Please remember, these videos were all filmed quite awhile ago. They reference posting in a forum and I talk about providing feedback and drawing on people’s quilts. While I’d be happy to answer questions and provide feedback, please understand that I will likely not be able to do so in a timely fashion. If you do have questions, and I’m not answering quickly, you are HIGHLY encouraged to go visit MQResource, the forum where this class started. The quilters there are VERY helpful and would love to answer questions. You do have to register, but it is a free site, no payment required. http://www.mqresource.com/forum
The class, back when I taught it online was $50 (I think? My memory is terrible) and it lasted 5 weeks. I’m posting all of this here with a virtual tip jar open. You are welcome to view the videos, download the handouts, and all I ask is that you (a) respect my copyright, (b) tell a friend about it, and (c) contribute as you see fit. Was the material worth $1 to you? $25? $50? Nothing? It’s entirely up to you. If you want to share, here’s a handy link you can send a friend: http://wp.me/PqREJ-1Lu

The class is arranged as individual weeks. Each week has it’s own page with a stitching lesson and a drawing lesson. Each week also included other information and a weekly self-check. Later weeks also included Feather Variations (“decorated feathers”). You are welcome to work through each of these “weeks” at your own pace, but I encourage you to take the time to do the drawing as set — practicing 15 minutes a day for a week is better than putting in a 2 hour session.
I hope you find value in these videos and handouts. Happy Quilting!
