Indigo And Iron Feathered Star
I love this traditional pattern, the feathered star. It is so dynamic.
I made this quilt with fabrics that are either naturally dyed, or go with the natural dye colours. The fabrics are a mixture of floral, Japanese, shibori, stripes, toilles, ikat, Dutch Java prints, contemporary prints and Indian handprints, among others. To make this quilt, one needs a good eye for the exact 1/4" seam, as there are many small half square triangles to fit together, some partial seams and an occasion or two for eight seams to converge in the centre of a block.
