My Batik Feathers project is going quicker than I had anticipated. I have all the blocks done. Next comes the setting. Brown, tan, beige, cream, a little more red and a wild outside border are in store!
These are the fabrics I am using. It's one of those reds for the inner border and the top right fabric is the outer border. The larger piece on the bottom will be the back. Below is the design Batik Feathers by Donna Lynn Thomas. It can be found in her On-Point Patchwork book. Her designs use the Omnigrid On-Point Ruler.
I'm so anxious now to finish this up. Any ideas for a "K" name? The only thing coming to mind right now is Kwill. I have feathers in mind... See other projects going on today through the links of Patchwork Times.
Back and Outer Border
I have started the hand applique on Kompass. I haven't gotten too far, but all is going to plan!
Do you remember this project from late January? I am back to working on it. The blue/red block was done at the workshop. Green/red block next.

All that's left is to hand applique the flying geese ring in place. Going to see what fabric Paradise Sewing has for Korners' outside border and back. I have a nice coupon that is burning a hole in my pocket! TGIF everyone.....
