Feathered Star center for Underground Railroad quilt

My first feathered star block, I used a tutorial from "One Piece At a Time" that was posted here. Good instructions! I did lose a couple of diamond points but very pleased with finished block. This block will go into a center medallion for an Underground Railroad quilt. Not sure yet about what fabrics or design I will use to border the medallion. I have layed out my fabrics and drawing along with my fabric swatch sheet. I have been sick with upper respiratory infection and laryngitis so I am looking forward to starting the blocks when I feel like sewing again.

    I hope you feel better soon. Just snuggle with those cute girls of yours and they will make you feel better.

  5. What aspect makes it an Underground Railroad quilt? I've read that the red or yellow center in a Log Cabin square was a symbol of the Underground Railroad. How fascinating. Your work is beautiful!
