Feathered Star

May was not only the big wedding month, but it was also the time for the annual BPF Retreat in Indiana. Six fun filled days of quilting with liked-minded friends! A group of us hit up a great quilt shop, The Back Door, on the way to the conference center, where I purchased this star quilt kit. It's a paper pieced Mini Feathered Star pattern by Cindi Edgerton of Little Bits. The fabrics are reproduction Colonial Christmas and it measures 17" square. I was able to start the flying geese units while at retreat, and then came home and put it away until after the wedding. It's now pieced and ready for quilting and binding!

Think I might have to make another one!!!

That is the cutest little quilt. Great job. I don't remember seeing that quilt at Back Door. We need to do purchase inspections in case we missed something.

That is so pretty Conni. I think that is the woman that we took a class from at Road 2 Ca. I made my little one but have the pattern for this one. Love how easy the pattern paper comes off.
