Marsha McCloskey's Feathered Star Quilt
At Spring Quilt Market in Minneapolis, MN, I luckily happened across Marsha McCloskey's booth.
She had two feathered star quilts hanging in blues and whites. The one pictured above, "Radiant Blue" appeared in the Fons and Porter Love of Quilting Magazine, the January 2007 issue. (The other quilt will be published sometime later this year...be on the lookout for it...it is equally as stunning!)
The quilt block in "Radiant Blue" is found in Marsha's book, "Feathered Star Quilt * Blocks * I". It is the "Radiant Star" pattern that begins on page 22.
If you are into making feathered star quilts or you are interested in drafting your own quilt blocks, this is an exceptional book to have.
Now I do have to warn you...the book states quite clearly on the cover that it contains "...Really hard blocks that take a long time to make". And she's not pulling your leg.
But if you're ready to make more complicated quilts, Marsha has done a wonderful job with this one explaining both how to draft and how to piece the feathered star quilt blocks.
Beautiful, inspiring work, Marsha! I can't wait to see what you do next.
