With one day to go til the end of May, I finished Kirsten's feathers, using Denyse Schmidt's Chicopee.
I did make a little cutting error, so bought a few emergency quarter metres from TQES to finish making the feather pieces (pretty happy about that actually, as now I have a nice little Chicopee stash!).
The only other mistake I made - apart from faffing about with sewing the 'B' pieces to the bottom of the feather pieces - was to get my outside 'F' pieces round the wrong way. Had to do a bit of unpicking and re-sewing.
I really love the feathers - Lorena's feathers from January, made from Anna Maria Horner fabrics were just gorgeous, and now Kirsten's from Chicopee are so beautiful too. The finished quilts will be fabulous, won't they?!
I should add too, that I gave the blocks a final iron after I took the pics. Mental note to do the final iron before taking the blog-pics next time ...
And as I didn't show you earlier (after I'd met up with Kirsten for a coffee when we headed south into NSW for my Dad's 70th) here's the super-sweet little zip pouch she made me, from Amy Butler fabrics. I did mean to take pics of the zip pouch WITH the feathers - but nooooo, I forgot. So here's the zip pouch sitting on top of the big, sealed envelope that contains Kirsten's feathers. Photo-styling ideas? - I'm full of them.
