This month's block is from Anna Maria Horner's gorgeous Feather Bed Quilt. Anna Maria's pattern provides a template for the block in 18" by 9" size. That's a bit large to fit in the sampler, but you can easily resize to a 12" by 6" block. To make a 12" tall feather, print the template with the scale set to 70%, and then add 1/4" to the side of F1/F2 on the edge that says "join to next F."
