Whenever someone asks me what my favorite quilt block is I always say Feathered Star. I have loved these blocks since I began quilting almost 30 years ago. But, true confession, I was too chicken to try one for a long time. I finally found Marsha McCloskey’s books and gave one a try. Of course I had to add a little applique (right, click for larger image), that’s just what I do.
I loved her technique and I was even more hooked. So I made a few more!
A couple of years ago Marsha came to our office to film her Feathered Star Quilting Techniques course and I got to meet her. She even used my sewing machine!
In this course you will learn all her amazing techniques for making these blocks. She even has a ruler to help with cutting.
The one technique she teaches that I have found so valuable is her bias-strip piecing to make all those little feathers. Here’s a sneak peak of what you will learn.
I sure wish there had been a course like this when I was learning! If you love these blocks you won’t want to miss it.
