Feathered Star: working

one border on


On my schedule for Tuesday was “complete the feathered star table topper. Well, here is where I am, one border on. All of the parts are made but I spent 3 hours on the phone Tuesday and 2 hours on the phone today, trying to get service from my internet server. I believe the router is kaput but they think it is my computer(s). I was using my cordless phones and had all three go dead, because of how long I was on the phone, both days. However, I seem to have service, for now, so thought I would share what I have been up to.



mistake


Here is another reason I didn’t get as far as I should have. What is wrong with this picture? And I didn’t see there was a problem until it was all sewn together either. I made a couple more before I was willing to take this one apart and do it right.




proper order


I now have 12 that are complete and, except for the sewing part, look just like this. All of the borders will look like the one in the first picture with plain squares in the corners. Then I will bind it with the background fabric, after quilting it, of course.




I am off to teach a WW group this afternoon and will be in FL doing the same thing tomorrow but hope to have this top finished on Friday. It will be good to have this one done because I have visualized it for so long and I am really proud of the feathered star.

Love your feathered star. I have had the book for maybe ten years but no star quilt yet. Good luck with technology !! Happy stitching Chris.

It's looking really pretty. Setbacks suck so I'm glad it was just one star that was like that.

For such a simple block,the Friendship Star has a tendency to be a stinker fairly often. Or is that just for me? :-)

Oh no! I have a feathered star in my WIP stash too. Visiting the blogs of WOW quilters is becoming spooky - we all have the same WIPs. Feather Stars can be a bit lacklustre, but this is really effective. I would love it on my table.
