    Hoop Sisters Embroidered Feathered Star Quilt

    Finally finished this quilt! This quilt takes an awful lot of thread so is very heavy. Mine is done in the 8" squares so with the border is a large queen. I chose to do a different border than what was suggested.

    Hope the picture comes through.

    Gorgeous quilt and the border you did is exceptional. Worth every extra yard of thread. Well done.

    One spectacular quilt! Having made exactly 1 feathered star block in my life, I know how difficult that pattern is; you did a beautiful job.

    Your quilt is gorgeous, and the border you chose frames it perfectly. You have a talent for good design.

    I have seen pictures of your quilting, it is beautiful! You could probably do this with your eyes closed.
