    My Second Feathered Star mini quilt! ( well top only so far)

    I enjoyed making my first feathered so much recently I had to make another! (here is my first one
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...r-t193582.html) Here is my second try at a feathered star. I used a different tutorial I found online, but I didn't like it near as much as the first one I used, so I won't mention which one it was. I found that pieces didn't line up near as easy or perfect, and didn't give the measurements clearly. SO... I am glad I used the other tutorial first or I might not have made another one! I want to but one of Molly McCloskey's Feathered Star books to make some more. I really want to try a really small one just to see how small I can go!

    I hope you like it! It is about 28" square. (still have to quilt it)

    Wonderful feathered star mini!! I have a similar pattern to PP that is a bit bigger. Pretty fabrics-I've used that lovely stripe myself.

    I love that pattern - you did a wonderful job - I am afraid to do that one - I have tried the lonestar a couple of times and not been successful - if you find a good technique let us know.

    Outstanding! I love the colors and the mitered border and the center medalion and the corner medalions ... It ALL works and plays together so nicely!

    Well done.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I had a feathered star moment back in the fall. Home sick from work - needed a project. Your stars are beautiful - but want to see how small you can go? This is paper pieced.

    I found that at Joanns in FL back in April. I only bought a yard for some dumb reason! It had fabric creations 2007 on the selvage.

    It turned out great! I made a queen size pp feathered star for my daughter (never again!) and I thought I'd go crazy but it sure turned out beautiful.

    Feathered Stars are so beautiful. I want to make one in the future.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Very nice! I really like this pattern and can see why they call it a feathered star.
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Very nice-love the border fabric.
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.
