I have so many feathers, certainly they will fly away. They were done the end of last week. Next up I need to remove the paper and start to put it together, but I have a few more things to be working on first. My February goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes was to take some of these blocks and make a small quilt top – you can read about it here. Here is my plan… I usually draft on graph paper as well as in my book, but for some reason that did not happen. I am fairly pleased with it so far, and it is growing on me.
The picture was taken under the same conditions as the feathers one, but this one is so washed out! It really is not as blah as it seems. I can tell, however, why these blocks sat in a box for so long. They are nothing like the bright colors that I like to work with! How about you? Do you have a favorite palette to work with?
