Party Crashing for Tracy and Sarah

I had a lot of fun making these blocks. For Tracy in Hive 6, I chose the theme, "A Day at the Beach." The tutorial was a cinch to follow and I was happy with the result. I photographed it by our jetboat, "Current Girlfriend," named after yours truly. I used selvedges for the string square.

For Sarah in Hive 1, I made a set of feathers. Being careful (read: slow) I took my time getting them done and still got the two rights mixed up, but oh well. I like the result and the fact that it is a nice big 18 inch block. A few would make a nice little wall hanging or baby quilt and I will be making it again, for sure. Her color choice worked out great for me; I have been holding onto a yard of vintage Alexander Henry waiting for the right project, and here it is. I used a piece for the solid side of the right feather.

Wow Jane those blocks were great. Love those fabric choices for the Spools and love the use of the selvages for the strings. Beautiful feathers.
