I did my feather! I need some more practice. I used by Bernina 630. I did use the stitch regulator (quilter training wheels). Leah Day recommends using iscord thread so I bought the variety pack off her website and gave it a whirl. I really liked it to do the pebbles also. I will need to get a few more colors because I generally like civil war reproductions and Kansas troubles fabrics and the color of thread I did get was more primary colors.
