I finally finished the feathered star for my medallion. I was a little worried I wouldn’t be able to pull it off, but it went together very easily. It lies flat though I may end up having to cut off one of the points. I’ll be happy if it is only one! I ended up using Marsha McCloskey’s Feathered Star Quilt Blocks I. I found the instructions very clear and will definitely make more of these blocks. Thanks to Dawn for recommending this book. This block is called Radiant Star and is the easiest feathered star to make. I was at the AQS show in Lancaster last week and picked up a Little Bits Feathered Star pattern (paper piecing) as Plan B. Glad I didn’t need to use it for this. I have some other ideas for it - all using a little more calming fabric. I’m not so sure about the fabrics I chose for this block. I’m planning on a very busy jubilee quilt so maybe once I surround it with other blocks it will just blend in.
