Quilling with feathers by Jean

Hi all,
Jean sent through this topic for all.....Amazing!! Jean

Has any one tried quilling with the knitting yarn ‘feathers’?

If you glue the edge of the yarn onto the edge of your fringing and quill. You will get amazing results.



Have fun. It adds a new dimension to quilling.

Hi Jean,
What an interesting concept. My left over Feathers yarn may have a purpose after all.
I must say it is not the easiest thing to knit with and I created a scarf with too many holes so gave up.
Anyone want some blue yarn? We could do a swap.....

Hi Jo,

The bottom edge of the feathers yarn as a knitted strip that is narrow enough to stick onto the uncut section of paper fringing. Feathers yarn is not good enough to quill on its own.

Once you have stuck the yarn to the paper, wait until the glue is dry and then quill in the usual way, then spread the fringing.

Wow Jean, is this a new find for you? it is so pretty and very unusual! I am thinking it would look great on a doubled fringed flower too, perhaps something with a pattern. I am off to buy some yarn!! Can't knit to save myself but boy am I going to enjoy fringing this!!
What else have you been trying besides the bark and yarn, I can't believe the results you are getting WOW

Hi Karon,

I am always trying to find ways to use things that they are not intended to be used and see what happens. I do this too, when I decorate the duck eggs as trinket boxes. Recently I used brown pebbles as a base for one egg and lined it with brown felt. Usually it is satin that is used. You just need to look at what is around and find other uses for it.

Life is an adventure in so many ways!

I am just wondering how say a fake (of course) duck covered in these fringed feather flowers all yellow would go. Think it would look quite snazzy. What do you think?

Wow this is a nifty idea! I just checked my scrapbooking ribbon collection and I do have a few leftover pieces of this yarn and some similar stuff. I'm off to experiment! Thanks for sharing this. Since I joined this forum, I really have gotten excited about quilling again! Love all the hints, tips and unusual ideas. Thank you everyone!
