I absolutely love feathers - there's something about them that is so beautiful. I have tried to design a feather pattern I loved for quite some time but nothing worked - til this one. This one makes me happy.
The pattern makes a 5" x 10" block. The beauty of this pattern is its versatility. Depending on your fabric placement, you can have a more solid looking feather (left picture), more open with white alternating with colour (centre) or go for greens and make it look more like a leaf.
Due to the nature of the pattern, it does have a lot of pieces involved but tends to look more complicated than what it actually is. Naturally there are no y-seams in this (or in any of my patterns. y-seams are yuck).
Paper piecing instructions are not included. Each section is clearly labelled and seam allowance has been added for each section. All you need to do is print it out and away you go :) I suggest that you print to "Actual size".
