Feather blocks - Building Blocks Tuesday
I was beginning to wonder if I was ever going to get some sewing time in. Last week was busy and tough, but my wonderful hubby let me sneak down to my studio for a little quite time on Sunday. I was able to finish up the last few feathers I needed for this quilt.
WAY back in March of 2013, I asked my Make it Modern bee mates to help me with these blocks. I asked them to make feathers in fall colors, and they made some gorgeous blocks! Can I just say, these blocks are not hard, but they aren't easy either. Each block I made came out a different size, and I can't just blame the printer. Did my bee mates complain? Nope! They did their best and I have some lovely feathers to show for it. Thanks again and again Ladies!
My Lazy Bum friends chose this quilt as my April challenge. I didn't finish it, but I did make some progress.
It became a flimsy and magically got backed and basted, all in a Sunday. Perhaps it will get quilted on another Sunday soon.
I just love the different colored backgrounds, and each feather is so unique.
What blocks have you working on? I would love to see. Link up your fabulous blocks. You put a lot of hard work into them - show them off! This free linky will stay open until the first Monday of next month, but I will repost it every Tuesday until a new month starts.
1) Please link up only to the page in your blog showing your wonderful blocks, not just the blog homepage. Flickr pictures are also OK.
2) Make sure to put your blog name as the description so people know where they are going or the name of your block!
3) Please grab my button and post it in your blog post or sidebar.
