WIP Wednesday

The last of the Thanksgiving leftovers have been eaten and it's time to get back at the sewing.

These will be the last of my blocks for the Humility group of do.good stitches, because I'm letting go of a couple of groups to allow more time for other sewing commitments.

Simple friendship star blocks



this star block for Mary in the Mid Century Modern group was fun to do. Her quilt will be amazing
I included some of our Canadian chocolate : )



and because baby is due the end of the month, I thought I had better get busy making more feather blocks.  Now I have three.


My brain is trying to come up with some kind of a setting for these.  I am thinking five blocks kind of floating ? .........

Well, whatever you do, it will be lovely. These are the first feather blocks I've seen that I might want to try to make - they are gorgeous.

Great makings, all of them, but I especially like the modern star. That is awesome.

Sandra Walker said...

Stars are and always have been always will be my favourite block. I LOVE this modern one with the long skinny rays! Is it your own design? Purdy's!! Love them, sold them to raise funds for our Quebec and France trips for several years. :-) Nice to meet you!

Granny Maud's Girl said...

Five feathers kind of floating in the way the feather does in the Forrest Gump movie? (It was a feather, right? Sometimes my memory is dodgy.)
Or a brightly coloured bird shedding them! :)
The block you made for Mary is amazing. I remember exclaiming wow a few times when I first saw it on Instagram.

grapes and hearts said...

I love all of your blocks! But perhaps I love the feathers best :) Great use of scraps!!!

Ann said...

I like Mary's star block and see some fabrics also in my stash. Fun!

Nicky said...

All lovely ! Lucky, clever Mary - what a fab idea for a quilt and it works so well with a scrappy look. Thanks for linking up to #scraptastictuesday

Lorna McMahon said...

Oh my! Those stars are all sweet. Especially the block for Mary. Great fabric choices. And the feathers are so pretty, too. I'll be looking forward to seeing what you decide to do with those.

Those feathers are amazing. I'm pretty sure I'm going to be jealous of *all* the babies in your family ... they get the most beautiful presents!!
