Blocks Series - Modern Feathers - Block 4May 03, 2023
I wrestled with making this block the same as I had in the original version as it was so cool but ultimately decided that I had other ideas and needed to move in a different direction. Here is a photo of the original scrappy version block.

I loved this quilt block and think it still has a modern feel. I took elements from this design into the redesign. Keeping the dot-to-dot idea and using the feather as the center. I removed the ribbon candy design (as I have with all the other blocks) and used a pearl chain and pebble pop filler instead.
Having the feather building from the outside edge is a fun way to shake things up and make folks look a little closer. The way the pebble design looks on the grey and green fabrics is my favourite part.
The machine is an older Handi Quilter Avante with a stitch regulator.
I am using Glide Thread in the colour white.
The marking pen I use is a Kering blue water-soluble marker (any blue one will do).
I used my Rocket Ruler by Silly Moon Quilt Co. and the 12" straight ruler by Quilted Pineapple.
