What materials did you use? Cotton fabric, cotton thread for piecing, polyester thread for quilting and polyester wadding.

What are you most proud of? The little fan things in the small triangles - they came out acceptably well (rather to my surprise). Again, the feathers were a pain! The tramlines were okay, but I didn't get them quite as even as I'd intended. Never mind - next time perhaps?

What advice would you give someone starting this project? As with Block 10, it would be a good idea to take some time to draw the feathers on a piece of paper in the zig-zag formation first, to see exactly how they should be placed in the angles - I didn't! My problem is, I'm always in such a hurry to get it all finished!

That's our boy, Rupert! He's measuring the block, I think!

Love the fabric and the stitching makes them stand out. In one word - beautiful.

Thank you - I must say it does look a bit more interesting with the "tram lines" in the light parts, but it really wasn't my favourite block. Thank you for your kind remarks.

Your feathers are terrific and I always like "tram lines'. I will be interested in seeing the final quilt.

Thank you. I'm looking forward to seeing the completed quilt too, but there's going to be a bit more hard work involved first! Three blocks still left to quilt and then I've got to put it all together. Will have to be stern with myself and do it before embarking on the new 2013 BOM!

I have not yet started BOM 2013. I ordered the fabric bundle and will start when it is received. Are you doing Amy Gibson's Sugar Club BOM.

Your selection of stitching designs is wonderful.

They are all the ones suggested and demonstrated by Leah Day in her class "Free Motion Quilting a Sampler". I learnt so much from that course. My quilting isn't very good when seen "in the flesh", but with practice I hope it will improve. Thank you for your kind comment.
