Here are the last two blocks of the Feathered Star. The centers are Forest Path and Iowa Star.
The Iowa Star was paper-pieced. It has the sharpest star points. For such a complex looking block it was amazingly simple. So, the four corners of the quilt are anchored with center blocks that are stars. I put sashing between a couple of blocks to see if I was going to like it. The sashing takes away from the opportunity to do special quilting in the large spaces formed by adjoining the blocks; but I decided I needed it for the size of the quilt.
There will be small stars as cornerstones between the sashing. I have all of the bits printed, cut and stacked for the stars.
Here is the sashing between blocks 1 and 2. It makes the quilt a little more masculine which I guess is good since it is for my husband.
Have a good day
