Feathers for 2015

A fun & scrappy feather pattern for our next donation quilt.

This is the chance to make use of all those scraps that accumulate and try something a little more complex than our usual 🙂

We’ll use osnaburg, a lightly textured, inexpensive cotton, as a background to unify all our blocks. It is available at West Seattle Fabric Co. in Admiral, as well as many other fabric stores & online.

The feather block is from the Feather Bed free quilt pattern designed by Anna Maria Horner.

She shows one block as having 2 feathers, but we’ll make them as ones and arrange our layout depending on how many feathers we get made 😉

 

 

 

 

Read Ms. Horner’s blog about her lovely design here.

And download her pattern for free here.

While you’re there, be sure to check out all of her amazing work!

Another blog  OliviaJaneHandcrafted.com, has an interesting tutorial on doing the feathers, lots of clear pictures!

Our next meeting is coming right up on Monday, Jan 26th, 4pm – 8pm
