A Feathered Star Journey

Many months ago I saw a post on Marsha McCroskeys' Facebook page about a new quilt called Stars of Chamblie that she had designed and was promoting at Spring Market. I posted a picture of her quilt in a previous post. I ordered the book as soon as it became available on her website along with her specially designed Feathered Star Ruler.

 Some words of wisdom if you decide to embark on your own Feathered Star Journey!!!!
You will need patience, organization and precision. Make sure that your seam allowance is an accurate 1/4 inch, keep your seam ripper close by, the sooner you find and correct an error the better. For me, a slightly lazy piece-er I had to learn the above lessons the hard way. I'm glad that I challenged myself I have finished piecing 8 out of 9 blocks. whew!!!!!

Block 9 waiting to be pieced...perhaps tonight??

On another note, the Simplicity applique quilt that I finished this summer has returned from the quilter. It turned out beautifully! A local LAQ named Richla Ramsey quilted feathers, and bubbles and brought the quilt to life.

Have a great fall weekend
