Design Wall Monday--My Feathered Star

Here is my Feathered Star, cut out to be a class demo:

15" Radiant Star with 1" burgundy borders

It now goes to one of my friends for our 3-person Round Robin.  We do these occasionally to commemorate quilt trips we've taken together.  This one was formed in Paducah, April 2013.  We each selected a focus fabric or theme, and each of us bought 2 fat quarters for each other, that went with the stash we were each buying for our own project.  This Round Robin has no rules--we each make a center block and pass it on.  We might pass it back around more than once, might not.  Anything goes.  This works when you trust your friends.

Here is the first one to make it to all three of us, it belongs to Ellen:

Ellen did the center applique' block, I added the Sawtooth and narrow dark borders and Sharon added the Four-Patch borders.  Now it goes back to Ellen to work her magic--I'm betting she adds more applique' next.
Be sure to check out Judy L's blog to see what others are doing.
Let's quilt!


  1. What fun. Nice to have such good and talented friends.

  2. Looks like a great way to be creative. Last time I did a round robin with one girlfriend her's got finished and I just dragged mine out this past weekend to see what to do with it. Thanks for more inspiration! Your center is awesome.

  3. Hey, that's a really cool way to commemorate a quilty trip! That's a beautiful one for Ellen! And I love your feathered star. I have two of the six done from the P&S BOM in 2008 (I think). The centers are all done, just have to plug away at the stars themselves! :)

  4. What a nice idea and what a nice-looking quilt.
