Terry, I have feather stencils that I chalk on so I know they are all the same size. Heidi gave me that tip a few years ago. I don't always follow the lines perfectly, but they give me the uniformity I need. The feathers in the corner are drawn with chalk. I measure to be sure all four corners are similar and then take a picture so I remember when I get to the bottom. I charge by the square inch, but not enough. People in my area won't pay what a quilt is worth. So I have to decide how much I'm willing to accept. This type of quilting is easy for me, so I was fine doing it.
Laura, the lady used a pattern for the center and then made up the spikes using a t square. I'll try and get the name of the pattern for you.
