Fabulous Feathers & Fillers is Sue Nichol's second book on machine quilting; it is a follow-up to her Machine Quilting: A Primer of Techniques. The author dedicates this book to Gwen Marston, whose style of designing and quilting feathers inspired her own work with whole cloth quilts. The techniques in this book are geared to quilting on home sewing machines but can be adapted to mid or long arm quilting.

All aspects of machine quilting feathers are explored in this well-written and well-illustrated book. The author discusses setting up the sewing room, gathering supplies, drawing the feather designs, sizing designs, marking the quilt, and practicing the feathers. Especially helpful were the sections on the effects of various batting and thread weights and types on machine quilting. My favorite hint was to buy kitchen rubber gloves in a smaller size, cut off the finger tips, and use a rubber tip on the first two fingers of each hand to grip the quilt for free-motion quilting. She offers a dozen stunning, intricate feather designs and a variety of background fillers to practice. When perfected, the results will be show-stopping and award-winning!
