feathered star 1 of 6
YIPPEEE! it turned out...I like the fabrics...oh gee..now I need to make FIVE more! I think I will sew it in sections. Maybe 2 or 3 at a time...I hope it does not turn into a UFO! I'm off to sew my 1st day of judys HAD quilt. I'll be sure to post pictures of that as it goes along.
It is not perfect, but I'm determined to enjoy the process as much as the finished product. Stressing over my favorite block in my favorite color is NOT allowed. I am very satisfied so far. Anyone done many patterns where you iron the seams open? I did on this one after reading about it in Marsha McCloskey's Feathered Star book. I also used Magic Sizing. I now have a nice FLAT block. Happy girl!
You can see from this picture the backgrounds a bit better. I had a hard time finding enough blue on whites...or shirtings. I had to use the floral background more than once. I would have liked to use more of a variety of backgrounds, but was unable to find anymore but these.
