I had such a good laugh (sorry Lucy) at Lucy's Bra-Star! Here I thought everything she sewed was always perfect! And I"ve been so frazzled and busy lately it was just good to see a funny boo-boo!
Her feathered stars made me think about a few feathered stars I've made over the years. I think the Feathered Star has got to be my favorite block. I"ve always wanted a fancy multi-feathered star quilt, but I"ve just never taken the time to do it.
I have however made 4 feathered star block quilts. The one at the top was for my sister for her entryway of her house. She picked out the colors and fabrics. That one I did get completely finished! The third picture was actually my quilt I made first before I made my sister's! But as you can see I still need to quilt it. It is one I love so much I"m afraid to touch it! Now isn't that just too silly!
The other two were much smaller and were identical. They were feathered stars with a cardinal appliqued in the center. I made those years and years and years ago. And can you believe it, I can't find a picture right now - I know I have one. Anyway, one went to my Aunt (my godmother) who LOVEs cardinal's and the other one went to my mom and she has it hanging on the wall in her entryway. So everytime I go visit I get to see it. They turned out really lovely and it was the first applique I ever did. Maybe I"ll make my sister go take a picture tomorrow and email it to me - that might be easier than trying to find mine!
Its late and I"m tired. Adam and Jenna both decided to hit the midnight showing of Pirates last night, so being a mom, I worried until 3am when they got home. And of course they wouldn't be caught dead in the same theater, so they both went separately to different towns! But they both got home within 10 mins of each other so at least I know they weren't off goofing around somewhere. But so much for sleep! I"m off to bed! I hope I can do some catch up this weekend - I"m missing you all so much!
