Feather Bitty Block

I've been working on little "Bitty Blocks" for a while now. 
Never even knew that they were a 'thing'...

I saw some interesting feathers in larger blocks - so naturally I just had to (had to!!) make some as well - but just a whole lot smaller.

This is a 4" Feather block - Really easy and very quick to make



This little block took me less than a half an hour to make. 
Only when I was finished I saw that I should have used a turquoise piece and not the blue. Too bad for now... I'll make another one later. 
I cut mine smaller and now I'm using this one as a bookmark.



The Free PDF is HERE... I hope you all make some feather blocks too.
I'll add the block to Craftsy as well (as a free pattern).

IS there anyone out there who would like to do a BITTY BLOCK QaL?? 
We could make these with the idea of just collecting them or you could use them to swap with others.
How about a February start??  January start if you decide to make a feather....
Free Blocks each month!
