Feathered Star block / Marsha McCloskey workshop
The plan for feathered star quilt is an organized scrappy blended effect with blocks of different sizes. In the workshop we learned to draft a feathered star so any size is possible, starting with the size of the feather triangle/square. This block began with a finished 1" feather. The inside block is 15". I chose the alternate setting with the added border for a medallion center. I will use Marsha's book Pieced Borders and build my design as I go.
This is the way I really like to work, creating as I go. Of course there is the disadvantage of using up my favorite fat quarters and wishing I had more of a fabric, not knowing what it was or where to buy more. That is what organized scrappy is all about!!!
