Quilting Tips: I am a huge fan of stitching designs that are “purposely random,” whether it is feathers, leaves, or even straight lines. If you are having trouble keeping designs all the same size, simply stitch them in purposely random sizes. By doing this, you remove the side by side size comparison, AND get the added bonus of adding more interest to your designs.
