Feathers for Sew Sew Modern

Whoa there, paper piecing takes a LONG time!

I spent the whole afternoon making this...

Low Volume love
Pattern by Shapemoth

To go with this...

Low Volume love
Lots more to do...
I need to make a whole load more plus squares and a few other things but I am hoping that it will all come together in a kind of Low Volume love fest pop!  It will eventually be my Sew Sew Modern swap item; totally inspired by my secret partner.

Keep your fingers crossed for me that it works!

  5. Um, so worth it, though! I think your feather block is amazing. I may actually try it now! I tried "real" paper piecing this week and it took me 4 hours to do one block. But I thought it was worth it!

  8. The feather is fantastic but I would never have the patience to make it at all.

  9. Looks beautiful! I really like the contrast between low volume background and bright colours of the feather and +. And I agree with both - PP takes lots of time and your rotary cutter is sooo pretty!

  12. I'm making 6 of those blocks from the Forest QAL and the feather has definitely been the quickest, most fun and easiest.....!
