I will join you soon! Things to finish first, but I can see them in my head, teal and gold and ... Thanks for hints.
Wow you go girl!! These look awesome cannot wait to see finished...and I will be dreaming of fabrics in my head for whatever month you decide to do the swap:-)
You're so fast Marsha! When you start signups I'll definitely participate. These look great
+Super, Hawkfan! I think it will be fun to have a great variety from our TB friends.
Great feather... When you printed off template did you do it with no scale...or what on printer? Does that make sense?
Oops hit to post before explained...somewhere read it is suppose to be 18" but your is 17? So just trying to figure that part out.
Ooh I Love this. Saw this in one of the Hives as block of the month and thought I must give it a try
True , obviously I had some trouble reading my ruler last night. I saw the 17 on it and thought "Oh, it's 17 inches." Of course the feather went above it and I just wasn't thinking it's an 18" ruler!!!! The feathers are very close to 18" and a couple just over. That must be why the directions say to trim them all to the same size. They aren't bad to make, just reversing pattern pieces is necessary.
Quilterinmotion LOL I seem to periodically forget how to read my ruler...like today! Thanks for clarifying. I print out pattern and wanted to make sure I had done it correctly.
I sure will keep my eye out for sign ups, I love these feather blocks !
libellenart , yeah! If you have any hints for us on how to make them easier, please PM me. I'm going to do a tutorial to make them as simple as possible.
Quilterinmotion Sorry cant help you there:-) First I used just some scrap fabric and put them right next to each other to make the halfs but I got tired of that real fast ( you can view that process in my studio) and then I used the same strip method you did with the offset stripes of fabric. That went so much faster !!! I had trouble though to get the direction of the right half correct. Once you got the steps down its not that hard anymore but there was a lot of seam ripping going on with the first 2 feathers hahaha.
libellenart , I'm so glad to hear you had the same experience True and I had with the right hand side of the feather. I did figure out a way to do it which I'll share in the tutorial but it is discouraging to seam rip so we hope to keep everyone from having to go through that!!!! Thanks for you commiseration.
I agree once you figure it out it goes well and you can do a lot in a short time.
Love your feathers!!!
