Last April, I showed you my test Feather block from Anna Maria Horner's Feather Bed Quilt, as well as some directions for doing this block as a bee block.
For this bee block, I provided the solid background (creams and beiges) and grey for the the feather spine. I asked my OMQG Bee mates to use medium value scraps for the feather edges.
I was tidying up my studio the other day and realized that I hadn't shared these beauties and that it was time to start working on this quilt again.
I am definitely "hearting" these blocks! Thanks bee mates!
I think I'll add more beiges to spread the feathers out and maybe make another block or two.
Your friends chose some super fabrics/colours to make the feathers, going to make a great quilt. xxReplyDelete
Lovely, looking forward to seeing the completed quilt.ReplyDelete
Those rich colours really pop against the beige background. Awesome work by your bee mates! Looking forward to seeing what you will do with this. with the beige you plan on adding, there will be lots of room for some great quilting...ReplyDelete
Although I realise you may not use this layout for your quilt, I really like how you've offset the feathers.ReplyDelete

I'm currently making my second AMH feather quilt! I made one for my daughter's boyfriend for Christmas and my hubbie loved it so much that I'm now making him one of his own. It's such a fun quilt to make AND quilt....and leaves lots of fun scraps to play with ...ReplyDelete
these are fabulous! I have such a horde of AMH fabric, but I am afraid to cut into it. Why? I don't know!ReplyDelete
Beautiful feathers, I love how the feathers are placed and their rich colors.ReplyDelete
They are beautiful M-R! Looking forward to seeing your completed quilt... this is going to be a beauty!ReplyDelete
