Not a Feathered Star

 This seemed like it was as hard as a feathered star block! By looking at the photo it doesn't look like I lost too many points. It was crazy and ironing was even worse. I had no idea which direction to press them. This is the only block I got done this week for the Ohio Sampler.
I did get my doll quilt top complete and am hoping to get it basted soon so I can add some hand quilting.
Check out  KAREN'S, LUANN'SCATHY'S, and NANCY's blogs to see how they are coming on their Ohio Sampler.
Here is my instagram feed for this week! Happy May Day!

Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. I found the star block hard too and once you see my blog picture, you will notice that I have to fix two of the points...or lack of points would be the correct thing to say. I had to look at the block diagram while sewing parts together and still could not get it right. I like yours done in the red and green fabrics.

  11. Seriously, this block has more "feathers" (AKA itty bitty half-square-triangle units) than an actual Feather Star block ;-) It's a cool block.

  14. Complicated! Wouldn t it make a great full sized quilt? Maybe cheddar and indigo ..or scrappy?
