Whose Feathers are Falling?

This week, in addition to continuing my slow and steady work on Atoms and Oranges, I've been cutting fabric for a new 12 inch block.  I've been wanting to do a round robin for some time, and when I tried out the local quilt guild in September and they were doing sign-ups for a round robin...  It seemed like the perfect opportunity, so I jumped right in.

With a plan in mind, I first snuck a small square out of some colorful bubbles that I've been saving.  Then I searched my stash for a good background fabric.  I liked these feathers so much that I'm hoping someone out there can help me identify it.  (Because of course the piece I have didn't have a printed selvage!)  I think it would go well in the large bubble quilt I have planned, if it's still available.

Diamonds and Dashes

I've been adding stitching close to the ditch on the Atoms and Oranges churn dashes.  Six large diamonds will be formed where four blocks come together, and these areas will recieve more quilting when all the straight lines are done.  For now I'm just enjoying the secondary pattern they make.
