Feathers in the Nooks

This is the Nooks and Crannies pattern. I decided I was going to cut into my Plum Layer cake, and I love the way it looks. I am glad this wasn't my first attempt at lots of bias in one project, because it definitely tested my patience.

 I did fudge the pattern a bit. I had all these offcuts from the sides (the initial cut from the layer cake), so I used these on the ends instead. I ended up having to add one extra triangle, but in the end, I had enough to make a strip for the back as well. The back has yet to be constructed, but I the bright pink feathered print for the main portion.

I always get stuck on trying to achieve the random look. This one was not any easier. In addition to wanting "random," I also didn't want to many solids together, or too many fleur de lis all in one place. This pattern was alot of fun to figure out, and there are three more variations. I look forward to trying each one.


I appreciate comment love! Thanks for stopping by!
