Here is my first feathered star which I finished a month ago but never had a chance to post on my blog.
It's a miniature feather star. (well, the instruction said 17-1/4" x 17-1/4" finished size, but I ended up16-1/2"x16-1/2")
I bought this pattern at a quilt show. It contained a direction with tissue foundations for machine piecing.
Although you know me , I like hand piecing. :-)
Here is a close-up picture with my thimble.
