Feathered Star Love

Bordered Feather Star web 300x300 Feathered Star LoveWhenever 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!

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.
