The Last Four Feather Blocks

My Feather Bed quilt is home and on the bed and now I'm using the last four feather blocks to make some big, 24 inch square, pillow covers.  They're on the design wall, along with this month's lotto blocks and that sweet musical kitty tea towel that refuses to be put away because I'm still thinking about it ...


Design Wall - 10/11/2014

I stringed together more of the stringed pieced scraps for the narrow borders on the pillow covers and, miraculously, I still have some small scrappy leftovers ... and a plan for using them.

2 BlocksThe Block Lotto blocks, called Woven Bars, are 7-by-14 inches; there's an A-block and a B-block and when they are alternated in a straight set, you get the illusion of an even weave of strips.

As I mentioned on the Block Lotto blog yesterday, I think a mini-version of this block will become a Rainbow Scraps Challenge project for me next year, combining the color of the month with neutrals.

You can download the block directions from my Free Quilt Block Patterns page.

It's been too long since I participated in Judy's Design Wall Monday. It feels good to be organized enough to be back ;-)

Oh Sophie, the block lotto block in mini would be a great Rainbow Scraps Challenge! They would make an adorable quilt. I really like it in the colors you have now too. What a great block.
