I have been working on my Nine Patch quilt and I an designing as I go along on this quilt. Sometimes I skip over parts until an idea comes to me and that happened on these little funky side pieces that run all along the inside edge of the quilt.
What the heck am I going to do with this shape?? Then it hit me. This quilt is going to all sorts of feathers on it. So that is the theme. Feathers. Okay so first things first this will need a spine for the feathers.
Hard to see on the floral fabric so lets switch over to the other side of the quilt which has a more plain fabric.
Just keep going. (Have I mentioned how hard it is to quilt and take pictures?) Just keep going and then do the other side of the spine. Apparently I didn't get a good picture of this but ta da its done.
This fits in nicely with the shape of the block and it adds a lot of texture.
Oh and here is what the side with the flowers looks like.
