WORK IN PROGRESS WEDNESDAY : SEPTEMBER EDITION

Later this month I'm going to be involved in a blog hop for the book Sweet Tweets by Erin of
Why Not Sew. Her little quilts are just so cute!  Stay tuned for that......

I started a project from her book and of course it has hexies : )


......and I have finally started the baby quilt for my next wee grand babe due in October


this is a pattern by Anne Sullivan of play-crafts called Contour Feather


so far, so good


I'm not sure how many feathers I will make, or how to even set them, but I'm pretty happy with this first one.

Enjoy the rest of your week,

linking up with freshly pieced
sew fresh quilts

Did I miss something or am I just addle headed?? Another wee grand baby in October?? Congratulations!! Those wee hexies are very cute, but then hexies always reign supreme in my books. Your feather block is pretty impressive, Carla! =)

Love your feather, love the fabrics, it’s a great pattern!

I’ve made three of those feathers using Liberty fabrics and then messed up the quilting of the pillow cover. I’ve been unpicking the quilting, so I need to find a better way to finish it up!

And... another grandbaby on the way! Congrats!

Megan said...

That's such a pretty block!

Feather Love. Thanks for the post. Where did you get the instructions? (Sidenote: I'm transitioning to an new email. How do I change the one this blog has for me?)
