Another Feathered Star Update

After posting my design wall yesterday, I couldn’t stand it and worked some more on the feathered star.  Here it is this morning.

The only thing left is the center.  Unfortunately it is a 6 1/2 inch finished block.  I am tempted to just put a plain color in the center.  I wanted to do a star but am having trouble deciding on one that finishes at 6 1/2 inches.  I can’t find any online patterns since it is such an unusual size.  I have been playing on graph paper and think I might try a churn dash variation that finishes at 6 1/2 inches.

More later.



  1. One solution may be to make a smaller star you like and then border it with your greens to bring it to the right size. It looks wonderful so far! Love the colors too!

  2. hey melinda-

    another suggestion would be to draw out the block you want in the size you want and paper piece it...i mean you've already paper pieced that feathered star, what's a couple more seams???
    good luck, can't wait to see whatcha do

  3. Woo Hoo! It's looking great.

  4. Looks great Melinda.

  5. Your star looks fabulous! Pam
