Scraps, strips, and feathers
I’ve been working with strips again,
it’s fun, satisfying and creative.
I can use any any width, any color.
it goes fast, just sit and sew.
The creative part:
simply play with it, look for the different options,
go anywhere you want.
First option, a star:
Alternating the chevrons:
“Squares” on point:
And there are so many more options to play with!
I’m going to make more blocks….
as the whim takes me!
Suffice to say that
I got carried away…
I had to start another project that also uses strips!
I usually save tiny pieces,
but these ones here are going to the bin!
The pieces have to be cut diagonally, so, in my case,
using scraps, I had to sew the strips off-center:
Always check to keep the pieces consistent:
A little while after, the first sets:
Preparing the stems:
Finally, the first feather block,
I’m in love with it!
We celebrated another birthday at home,
I baked another cake ;-)
“I feed my soul…
by the stitches I sew”
I feed my hips
by “cake” bits!
Have a lovely and creative week!
PS. The feather block is from a pattern from Anna Maria Horner “Feather Bed Quilt”.
