feathered star finish

I finished my faux feathered star.  I found this pattern at the Houston Festival last November and just loved it.  It is raw-edge appliqued.  And then you have lots of space for quilting!

I did tiny pebbles in the first white space...  Then a basket weave around the feather vine.

The border has a free-hand drawn feather vine and a quilted feathered star. This quilt is 30" x 30"

And if you cut carefully, you will have extra pieces to make little wallhangings, potholders, whatevers.... Yes, it took a while to cut this, but doesn't everything worthwhile take some time and effort?

Here's the pattern:Linda Everhart patterns

I missed one beautiful quilt from the Dallas Quilt show yesterday.  
This is "Red Roses for Roberta" by Bobbie Ashley of Pittsburg, TX (formerly of San Antonio)
 There are beautiful little cameos in those circles in the border and on the vase.

Look at the innovative edging and binding...

Hope you get some time to create today, Karen


  1. How beautiful and I would never have known it wasn't pieced!

  2. The feather quilting is absolutely gorgeous
