The other block was closer to the class version. I did the feathers, but I only did one with a relatively straight spine. The others I curved. (the class handout shows them all with straight spines.)
I simply outlined the hexagons to sew them in place. In the area above them I did simple stippling.
You know, somehow it resembles flowers with the feathers as the stems and leaves.
This one is also really interesting from the back.
I am using a variety of colored squares for both the front and back so that this will be a "fun and interesting" quilt when I join it all together.
FYI - Craftsy is running a Surprise Sale on Monday - 4/8/13 and ALL classes are priced between $9.99 and $24.99. That's up to 75% off original prices! But this deal only lasts one day.
