Featherz Border $59.00
Many quilters can do freehand feathers, effortlessly. This template is dedicated, to those of us,like me, whose feathers look like a pillow fight.
The Circle Lord gives you templates, that can do many patterns. The Aztec can do hundreds, the Gingko over 100.
Because, the template is held firmly on the table by the Circle Lord, each pattern can be positioned exactly, and the pattern reproduced accurately. The stepping disk function is the reason you can do this.
You have 16 holes around the outside, and a pin on the baseplate. Stepping out a pattern is not much slower than if the total pattern were on one template. The benefit is, that you get many patterns for same price as for one pattern.
In the case of the new Featherz template, there are 6 feather segments and two COG segments. The first four feathers are 11.5", 10", 8.5" and 7". The next 2 are left hand versions of the 8.5" and the 7". The wavy lines on the outside are called Cog segments. You get 5 bonus patterns from these.So in the end you have at least 11 patterns on this one template. Each Feather Wreath takes from 3 to 5 minutes to do.
Below is a picture of the template itself - PRETTY UGLY! EH?
Here is the real thing.

This is Jolene's first quilt using the Circle Lord.
"Cl was a very fast learned tool, easy to line up and move onto the next segment. The feathers really turn out beautiful and elegant. I love the way there is a variety of feather sizes, plus the echo design. The CL now stays on my table. It's used constantly."
"This quilt took about 4 hours longer than planned. I used the CL Featherz in all the blocks, plus SID around them. I'm very pleased with the end results. The quilt is very soft and feminine."

This is a marvelous example of pattern visualization. Note the use of the inner half of the Featherz wreath.
