I had one more rejected bee and I just couldn't throw the little guy away so I quickly (I mean quickly) made one more bee mini with a bunch of scraps and also practiced feather quilting too. I didn't even bother changing the color of the thread, brown! Oh well.
I hate basting.
But I love quilting! I saw a quilt like this somewhere on the internet and kind of shamelessly made one that looked a little like it, it is fairly traditional. I really loved the colors and the white which has now given me a great opportunity to practice free motion feather quilting.
In each block I am doing a different kind or shape of feather and filling in if I need to with pebbles or swirls or something else.
