Just Take 2 - Feathered Star

After sewing this block for the Just Take 2 challenge, I might just change my opinion about feathered stars.  This went together beautifully and all my points matched, I have 1/4” seam on all sides and, get this, it measures precisely 15 1/2” just as it should!  You can be sure that if I had more than one to make I wouldn’t be so lucky.  :o)


I’m just about on schedule and have just downloaded the next steps for April.  There is a rather complicated appliqued block, but I will give it a go.  Along with the instructions we are getting some of the assembly instructions too so I will finally be able to see how these blocks all look together.


Until next time....

Jane, your feathered star is wonderful. I did a wall hanging years ago, and I remember it was very difficult for me. You have mastered it! Love the blues!

I love your feathered star block - it's great. I've always wanted to make one but I'm a bit scared of all those angles and points!!!

Feathered stars are so daunting, but well worth the effort. Yours looks wonderful in blue and white!

Your feathered star is perfect in blue and white! To me it's very snowflakey, and hello perfection! Awesome job on it coming out the perfect size

Happy Easter!
