Block #7

Block 7  is my sixth block.
After I finished this one I promised myself - NO feet in my next block.
My next two blocks will be without feet - for sure.
This time I fused and buttonhole stitched.
When I tried to look up how you all did your feet my internet didn't work. Now it is working and I will have a look.
But I did enjoy this block (except the feet).
Happy stitching


  1. Hi Paula,

    the feet are abominable to do, aren't they? But yours look very nice. Excellent way of solving this problem! Cute block...

    Greetings from the Rhine,

  2. Your block is very pretty and that is a good fix for the feet. My first block was the ostrich and the feet were so awful it went in the orphan block drawer and I started over. I machine appliqued my next one and then had a friend suggest ultrasuede. Fuse it down, no turning under the edges, just sew it down with your regular applique stitch. It is a little hard to find ultrasuede, but there are vendors on Ebay that carry it. My BOP and Peahen both have ultrasuede feet.
    Happy Stitching,

  3. Very nice peacocks and I love the way you solved the feet dilemma. No worries! They look great!I have to say that the feet were my least favorite part of this quilt (I think I changed some of them).

    In stitches,
    Teresa :o)

  4. Paula - I'm with you. No feet for those birdies! I'm working on this block and after several feet attempts, am thinking I'm going to go with the buttonhole method.
