Paper Piecing the Feathered Star by Marlene


Marlene has been drafting her Skill Builder Blocks in EQ7.  She just wrote up a great post on how she used EQ7 to draft the Feathered Star block, but most impressively, she drafted paper piecing templates and figured out how to piece the block with no inset seams!   I seriously looked and looked for a way to piece this block with no inset seams, but just couldn't visualize it.   Sorry if you have already made the block the hard way like me.  If not, check out Marlene's post and templates for a much easier block experience.
Thanks for sharing Marlene!

  1. Are you kidding me? I ripped out my hair with this one last night, and it's not looking great, haha. I kept thinking "This would be a great paper-pieced block." I might have another go at it just to see :) Thanks for sharing--I wanted to see how it looked if I switched my fabrics around :)
