    Hi everyone, I went back and looked through my older books again and did find a feathered star quilt/no pattern. I guess it would be a feathered star "variation" as the points seem much more delicate than the photo I found. It is not signed and dated unfortunately but I do know the history as it was told to me so that info will be kept with the quilt for future generations.
    ...I was lucky to receive a number of fine quilts from my MIL - she had no interest in sewing/quilting and passed them on to us to use on our beds when we were first married, she was happy to get rid of them and I think they may have gone in the garbage if I hadn't taken them.

    It is a feathered star and there is a tutorial on how to construct one that has the same configuration as the one pictured here: (It is multi colored)
    http://sewhappy10000.blogspot.com/20...-tutorial.html
    I thought it would be easier to construct if there were directions for paper piecing. I did find a reference for paper piecing instructions for A Quilter’s Snowflake,Quilters Newsletter Magazine, December 2005 issue, designed and made by
    Richard Larson. This one has more points on the stars than the one pictured but if you can find the issue with instructions the paper piecing pattern is on the web at http://www.quiltersnewsletter.com/we...feature190.pdf.
    I was wondering if there might be one in EQ somewhere and will have to take a look at my program to see.
    I love the red and white quilt pictured! Ann in TN

    Feathered Star and the sashing is a variation of the feather not Flying Geese (no points).

    It is definitely a feathered star. The sashing is not flying geese. If you look closely, it is a small straight strip with half square triangles attached on both sides.. It is a gorgeous quilt.

    Ann, that one is definitely just about the same, except for the centre of course. This one was pieced and quilted very expertly and must have taken forever to complete...I bet great grandma would have appreciated the tools available that are shown in that tutorial but in the 1880's it was a much more complicated process! :-)

    That is beautiful! I agree that it's a Feathered Star with Flying Geese.

    I think the reason that it's hard to recognize as a feathered star is because it is all one color. That being said it is one beautiful quilt. I never thought of sashing that way but it sure makes the quilt!

    What a beauty! Putting in a cedar chest seems such a sad way to "save" this treasure. I am glad you have rescued it from storage as it is too beautiful to be put away and never appreciated.

    I have never considered using the flying geese for sashing. It is beautiful and there was certainly a LOT of work put into it. Glad that you can display it

    Striking pattern and a beauty! The longer I look at it the more simple the pattern begins to break down. I guess I am starting to think like a quilter.
