Scrap-bee-licious: Feather blocks

I am so hoping we have a snow day on Wednesday. We have had cold weather for a week (below freezing) and then today it was t-shirt weather. How are am I therefore thinking about snow on Wednesday, you might ask?

Yes, it will be below freezing again tomorrow with our first chance of snow this year. Ooh and just found out schools are closing tomorrow with the threat of snow @ 4pm….nothing like a bit of over-reaction!!

Over the weekend, since it was cold, I was able to catch up on my Scrap-bee-licious blocks. Rachel over @ Like to sew asked for Anna Maria Horner Feather blocks in jewel tones. Her post includes the pattern and a quick cutting tutorial, if you are interested or would like to use it for your bee block.

Here are my blocks, which I thoroughly enjoyed making!!

The first, I made the feathers with “A Stitch in color” by Malka Dubrowsky for Moda (still available on Etsy stores), and “Mama said sew” by Sweetwater for Moda.AMH_Feather_AStitchInColor

The second feather, I used “Clover Sunshine” by Alison Glass with Indigo Kona for the shaft. AMH_Feather_CloverSunshine

Linking up for “Sew Cute Tuesday” @ Blossom Heart Quilts  (see button on right menu).

    These are fun. I haven’t tried a feather yet, but they are on my must do list for one day. I really like the clover sunshine feather, that whole range just beams happy.
