Craftsy/LeahDay FMQ BOM quilt ...three more blocks!

This week's efforts... (and linking up with Amanda Jean of Crazy Mom Quilts' Finish It Up Friday)...

One block with a wreath of feathers and pebbles, plus heart motif...I am quite pleased with this wreath!

...another block with a feather pattern in the chevron (hard to see in the pattern of the fabric), a feather shell in the triangles and lines in between...

...and a third block with a spiral chain in the sashing and snake paisley in the triangles... 

Now, on to blocks 13 - 20 - only a week left until school starts again and this quilt shall be complete if I have anything to do with it (and if the Aussie Open tennis finals don't keep me up too late over the next three nights, hmm, do I want Nadal or Federrer to win? I don't mind, I just love a good game!)

(Next day...well done Rafa!! Gosh the final with Wawrinka is going to be a doozy!!)

    1. Thanks very much for stopping by! I am excited to think I am nearing the finish; I watched the last few videos of the class last night (while watching tennis as well) so am keen to get going today (before the women's final tonight!) Have a good weekend!

  3. Your pebbles look great! I get bored doing them with a paper and pencil, so I don't think I will try them on a quilt for awhile. Lol.

    1. Thanks! I have decided I could be making them bigger, for some reason I tend to move quite small. Thanks for visiting!

    1. Thanks a lot. The fabrics were mostly from a set I picked up at my favourite quilt shop and I just had to use them for this project!

  8. The quilting looks great! I especially like the feathers in the snowball. I love the way pebbling looks, but I hate to quilt it.

    1. Hi, I was really pleased with those feathers, yes. As for pebbling, I agree, I just need to go a bit bigger I think.
