The theme is feathers.....
Block 17: Laura's Echo Feather
|Row 5 Block 1 Front|
|Row 5 Block 1 Back|
This block has a single spine - the feathers are free formed.
I started my making the curved spine and the loop at the end.
Then I moved down the spine and created the side of the feather that was away from the loop first, curved and hit the side of the loop, hit the spine, went down beyond where the feather and did it all again.
When I reached the bottom I went back up the spine and did the same on the other side. This was a good way to make the design.
When done with both sides I went back and added two toppers to each of the feathers, then I did the echoing. I like everything except the echoing - that part is too loopy so doesn't really add anything to the design. But I didn't know what to do instead so I gave it a try.
Block 18: Feathers in a Circle
|Row 5 - Block 2 - Front|
|Row 5 - Block 2 - Back|
I added tips to the feathers in the hope of making them stand out.....
Putting the design in a circle makes it very dramatic!
Blogger Note: I'm going to click on the option I see in Blogger at the right for Enclosure Links and see what happens when I put the link back to Laura's site there.... (I don't see that it does anything!)
