    My first feathered star!

    I have always been intimidated by feathered stars....I found a free paper pieced feather star pattern on a blog named Threaded quilting studio. Printed off the 16” template pieces, and this was actually pretty easy once i got started. I will probably turn this into a pillow, but i am no longer afraid of these feathers, and I have plans for a larger project this winter. I have Marsha McCloskey’s book, Vintage Moments, and that is myultimate goal. Someday. Maybe!

    Oh, that's beautiful! Love the colors you used. I so want to master paper piecing but every time I try I just give up. I think I don't have the patience for it. That will be such a pretty pillow.

    Very pretty! We grow by trying new things. You did a beautiful job! I can't wait to see the Vintage Moments quilt you will make. I made 3 of them, one for each of my 3 daughters.

    Great job! I've been watching Angela Walters on YouTube doing Edyta Sitar's Feathered Star and wanting to try it. Sewing this puts me a step closer to trying.

    I just watched her video....i used many more pins than she did, and I paper-pieced! I am going to try a block using rotary cutting and no paper piecing. My suggestions so far-starch your fabrics well, and pin, pin, pin!
