I did what I generally do when I get stuck--set the blocks aside. My brain needs lots of time to process problems. In the end the feathers sat on the edge of the work table for almost a month.
I finally decided that I had to do something with the two blocks and chose to make a quilted book tote. It's large enough to hold several books. Plus, the long, durable straps can hold whatever weight I might put in and are a perfect match for the yellow fabric.
I took these pics yesterday afternoon and used the bag today: quite happy to report that it works as well as I had hoped.
Love yellow? Make a feather bag.
