Feathered Star Success!

Feathered star success!

 

The tiny feathered star top is done! The partial seam piecing wasn’t too bad and I only had trouble with one seam; the last one of course! I had to do what I always tell my students – only rip out three times. Because of the Fun-dation, it’s all quite square with no wonkiness. I could not have pieced such small half square triangles accurately without it.

It finished up at 10″ and then I added a bit of background around the star so that the points really show. I would have liked to have made the border of arashi shibori, but all the pieces I have are narrow, so I chose this bo maki fabric. There is a big hunk of it and there was plenty of room to fussy cut. I think it works well with the middle. Finished size, 17″.

  1. Ha, I had to look up the bo maki. When I read it, I was going to LIKE it, but found I did way back when you first published it, Deb. At least I’m consistent. Love the colors and effect.
