A Flimsy of Feathers
Not a quilt yet. Just a top.
72 x 90
I was looking for something different for string scraps and this fit the bill. I used the long pieces trimmed from quilt backings for the feathers.
I don't normally buy a lot of yardage when I buy fabrics but I've had this feather fabric for awhile. I think it was on the table at Hancock's when they marked all the Spot the Bolt fabrics down to $3.98 per yard. Plus I think it was senior day so I got a 25% discount off of that. I thought it was pretty ugly when I bought it and I thought if nothing else I would use it on the back of quilts. I like it now.
So, have you seen the elusive Quilt Back bird? I think that wild and crazy bird left me with some feathers.
