Working on {Sew} Beautiful Bee blocks today....  This block is for Lee.  She requested these blocks to make a quilt similar to this one by Rita.

This block is redeeming me today after yesterday's fail.  Here's the beginning of some AMH feathers for Katie.  Do you see anything wrong with them?


Yep.  I didn't get the memo about folding the strips for left and right feathers.  Instead all my strips go in the same direction.  AND I cut 3 right sides instead of 2.

Gah.  Everyone has their bad days, but why did mine have to be with someone else's fabric?

More Indie is on it's way from Sew Fresh Fabrics....

  1. Love your block. Is there a tutorial for that block somewhere? Sorry about the mixup on the feathers. I completely understand wishing those kind of mess ups were at least with your own fabric!

  2. I'm sorry my block gave you trouble! :(
    Glad to see your block for Lee! That looks like a fun one.

  3. I have to admit that I think AMH could have been a little more clear in that step. I read and re-read it a couple times. In the end I actually just traced my feather shapes onto the fabric before cutting... flipping two of them... since I was worried about not having enough. I'm sure yours will turn out great in the end though!

    I haven't started on this month's block - why am I always hesitant to start the precise blocks? lol.

  5. I love that hst block. Is there a trick to that or do you actually add the half piece to the end of each row to obtain that angle? Like 3 hst blocks and then a colored triangle, 2 hst blocks and then a colored triangle and on up to just the single colored triangle? I'm new to piecing and I know there's tricks to some blocks but can't figure them out for myself! Thank you :)

  6. Your block for me looks great!! Sorry about the problem with katie's. It's happened to all of us, though!

    Oh, and I like the new blog design, looks great! I REALLY need to redo mine one of these days. It's been the same forever.
