Here's the result of many hours spent laboring over the sewing machine over the past several months. This isn't the best photo (sorry-you probalby won't ever find great photography on this blog), and its not ironed because I've got a sick baby and only had time to put the borders on today. I'm always anxious to show off all my piecing work when I get a top finished so I hardly ever wait to have it quilted before the show and tell.
I like to challenge myself and the feathered star block certainly was a challenge. I'm very happy with how this quilt has turned out. The original idea was to use an icy blue, white and the feathered star block to create a beauitful snowy quilt. Last winter I lived in Utah. Now we live in Houston. There will be no more snowy winters for me. But with this quilt I can remember the beauty of large snowflakes slowly falling while I'm sitting outside on my patio eating BBQ on New Years. :) I have to brag a little bit about Houston winters because there isn't much to brag about our summers.
