I have an admission to make, this is my least favourite block.  I have to wonder because, in the Modern Quilting Series, this also was my least favrourite block.  Is it the block?  I don't know.  Anyhow you can find this week's video here:

I wrestled a little with the ideas I had for this block.  It is such a traditional block and I wanted it to be atypical and not completely predictable.  Thank you so much for watching it really means a lot! Here is a link to this week's video.

One ruler to rule them all!  If I had to pick a ruler that I could not live without it would be my Rocket Ruler by Silly Moon Quilt Co.  I did stitch this entire block using only this one ruler.  Here is a link to this week's video.  Thank you so much for watching I am working...

This quilt block took quite a lot of marking.  I have mentioned this before but I'll say it again, I love and almost exclusively use blue water-soluble markers.  I mostly use one by Kering but almost any blue water-soluble pen will work.  The technology isn't new and I haven't had...

This is one of the more difficult blocks to piece, I am not the best piecer but I was pretty proud of how well this whole quilt came out.  I antagonize endlessly when choosing fabrics as well.... hahaha I suppose my skills lie primarily in quilting.  Anyhow being one of the most...

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 had a difficult week this week.  I just felt like I took on a little too much.  I think that's why I find so much joy in these blocks.  They aren't complicated, To me they read simple and clean.  Feathers are one of the most flexible designs in the quilting world, you can...
