Feathered Star!

Have you ever made a Feathered Star?

This was my first time... and probably my last.

It's not that I didn't enjoyed the process ...

I chose fabrics mainly from my stash.....

And used foundation piecing, which I do find satisfying....

And I like hand quilting...

But I didn't grow too attached to it...

Because it is for the Doll Quilt Swap 10 on Flick'r.

So it's off to it's new home this week.

I hope my partner likes it!

Maybe one day I will make another one.....

Happy sewing!



  1. I love the bright colours on the dark background. It certainly has a lot of tiny pieces.

  2. Wow!!! This is absolutely gorgeous! Love the hand quilting!

  3. Wowza!!! Suz!!! This is so fantastic! I love it and isn't it fun to have the challenge of just one block? I so enjoy experimenting with blocks, knowing that I don't have to do a gazillion of them for a quilt. Did you use an Electric Quilt program for your foundation template? And your hand quilting looks perfect!!! YAY!

  4. What a stunning little quilt and I am sure the recipient will be well pleased - an added bonus being hand quilted. Take care!

  5. I love feathered stars and will get around to making one.. one day... Yours is wonderful and I'm sure it will be loved by it's new owner.

  6. OMW, that is absolutely gorgeous!! I'm sure, no, make that positive, that your (very lucky) partner is going to love it.
    Please could you let us know if the pattern is commercially available.

  7. If she doesn't like it, I know someone who would. :)

    The quilting is particularly beautiful. Very nice detail.

  8. Phew - there's a lot of work in that block... beautifully done Suz
