Crazy Quilt Artists Trading Cards

First thing this morning, I pulled out some fabrics and treadled up 6 tiny blocks for Artists Trading Cards. I have one stitched up already and another started:

ATC CQ 1

ATC CQ 2

I'll wait until I have all 6 of them stitched before putting them on the cards.

I was asked how I put the peacock feather on my June Take It Further Challenge block. I chose a feather that fanned out nicely and using a brush, I applied some fabric glue to the back. I focused mainly the eye part and only added a bit to the top of the strands. I laid it down on the fabric and using a toothpick, I carefully moved the strands of the feather to where I wanted them. I had to be careful with the fabric glue because it will show on the fabric if any wanders off on it's own.
