Finally, The Star and Some Feathers

 I finally have the Star Quilt out of the washing and drying machines.  It wrinkled up nicely!

Check out the back, it looks like a star!

And these are some feathers I made for Mr. Pat's Louisiana Traveling Quilt.  His does not have the theme of Louisiana like the other two I was working on.  It had the feel of modern masculine and angles.  One night I was dreaming that I had feathers from the Anna Marie Horton Feather Bed Quilt.

And it was so!

They will fit nicely on one side or the other.  I plan on leaving them off for the moment and sendin a note to the next person in line asking them to include them in their piece down one side or the other as it all fits together.

I really love this quilt.



  1. Lately, I have been thinking of making a large scale feather (from a single fabric--some striped home deco fabric in my stash) and making a (large) duvet cover from it. Your big star is more inspiration for that. I love Mr. Pat's quilt in progress and think your feathers will be a great addition.

  2. Yes! The feather is perfect for the quilt - I see a southwest modern feel to it all. Cool

  3. The star quilt turned out great! Love the feathers! They will look wonderful in the traveling quilt!


I love to hear from friends! Thanks for leaving a message!
