Friday Finish: Feather Block from Forest QAL

My paper piecing kick got derailed in the last week or so after our printer ran out of toner.  A brand new, $55 box of it that I'd bought at Best Buy, in a city an hour (each way) away had an opened interior bag and a totally empty toner cartridge inside (which we discovered only after it was home).  Booo....  We're working with the company now to resolve this.  In the mean while, we ordered on on-line from and it was delivered to us with free 2 day shipping earlier this week!  Yea!  Guess who I'll be doing more business with...

The above feather block from the Forest QAL group again was very challenging.  I made a few goofs, and unsewed more than a few seams, but I love it!  Thanks to Joanna of Shape Moth for the fantastic pattern!!

Along with the publication challenge finish at Project Quilting, I had a pretty good week!!

I'm linking up with Amanda Jean at Crazy Mom Quilt's Finish it up Friday!


  1. I do hope the company is Best Buy you are currently working things out with!!! I bet it was a recycle that was accidentally shelved by a stocker.

    Costco by mail is great. You don't even have to have a membership... which is even better!!! On the other hand I have one about 5 minutes away... so I can go... anytime!!!!

    Those feathers have a lot of stitch, fold and trip time on them!!! But they look fabulous.

  2. Fab feathers, hope you get your cartridge problems solved to your satisfaction soon!

  3. oooh those feathers are fabulous!! Love the colors you used.

  4. Hi, Becky. Great feather block. Ah, the joys of paper piecing. I also liked your corn packet--really cute!
    best, nadia
