The Weekend

I was able to finish the Feathered Star block from a workshop I took through my guild a couple weeks ago. The feathered star block has been on my list for quite some time and when I saw the workshop offering I signed up. Rather than foundation piecing the block on paper, the instructor using interfacing. This is the first time I had used interfacing for foundation piecing. I like the idea of not having to remove the paper at the end of the process but I found it to be a bit stretchy. I am glad that I tried the technique but think if I was to make the feathered star block again I would use foundation paper. The fabrics are all from my stash which makes me very happy. I do think if I were to make it again, I would use a different color for the churn dash blocks and inner border so they pop.I have moved this to the "to be quilted" project and hope to have it quilted and bound before our next guild meeting in two weeks.

Now back to the civil war blocks ---

I'm jealous - I've never tackled a feathered star block because it looks so hard. Yours is beautiful!
