Once again, another selvage feather that doesn’t read as selvages.

Feathers P 2 RW

Meh.  I’m still happy.

Ready for a bunch of repetitive pictures?

See?  There are selvages mixed in with the Kona solid white.  More Grunge fabric for the aqua background fabric.  I swear, if Grunge came in more colors I wouldn’t even look at another Kona solid again.  I LOVE Grunge fabric.  Love.  Love.  Love.  Almost as much as Cotton & Steel.  No worries though, I’m using some C&S for the back.

I picked up a half yard of these birds for the backing.  Perhaps I should have cut the selvage off and used it in the feather?

Feathers P 10 RW

Since I started writing this post several weeks ago, I’ve made one and a half more feathers in various colors for this project.  And that’s pretty much the only sewing I’ve done lately.  Only one half of a feather still to sew, then sewing the feathers together, adding a border, basting, quilting, squaring up, binding and hanging it in my son’s room.  At the rate I am sewing, that’ll take me three months.  Or more.
