Be-Feathered Star

11 09 2013

My friend and customer, Tanya, sent her red, white, and blue quilt for me to long-arm. It is for her son who requested “feathers” in some way, shape, or form.


I was nervous to quilt in the white areas with navy blue thread because every aberration as well as stops and starts are so visible. But, in this case, overcoming the uncertainty was worth it—feathers transformed this design of simple Half Square Triangles into a show piece!


Tanya found this star design at Jamie Elfert’s blog L’Fair Quilts as a free tutorial, “Stars Over Scott.”
