Then there were three

Remember my feathered star? I have found that I really enjoy making the block, and now the total tally is three:

Hopefully I'll have 12 of these blocks for a quilt someday (I have a plan, but not a sewing schedule *lol*). They are time consuming, one block takes me aproximately two efficient evenings to make. But they are ohhhh so fun, and I think they are really pretty!

I also want to say thank you to everyone who sent your best wishes on my previous post! I have tried to respond to all the comments, but there still are a few registered with noreply-comment...

Happy quilting!
Sincerely, Anne Ida

Dette blir verkeleg kjempefint, Anne Ida! Du er så nøyaktig og produktiv og flink!! Gledar meg til å sjå dette produktet ferdig, rundt juletider???

Stunning! You are always busy with wonderful projects.

These just keep getting better and better. O and congratulations on getting your quilt into the book! What an honor.

They are GORGEOUS!! I have always loved that block but have never attempted one. I bought Marti Michell's feathered star templates. They are made of the same material as the rulers we use with rotary cutting. So you can rotary cut the perfect pieces using the templates. Looking at your gorgeous feathered stars makes me want to go try them out!

floribunda said...

May Kristin said...

They are absolutely gorgeous! Look forward to see more of these!

Sweet P said...

Have a great day!

You make such wonderful blocks. So keep on making them. See you next weekend at Lise's house with your angels.

They are gorgeous. I've been meaning to do one of those for ages but have always held back.

They are so pretty, Anne Ida!
And so perfect pieced, you are a very good patchworker!!!And the colour combination is great, I'm particularly fond of the greens!

Thye are lovely - far to "fussy" for me. (I would have to hire a sewer - or buy a finished top to get one of those into my collection.)

Beth said...

feathered stars are my favorite block also! I have ALL the HST ready for 9 blocks (I THINK) and a nine patch based setting from a magazine from a few years ago. I think you spurred me on to work on them! After all, with all those HST done, that is most of the work! Yours are lovely!

Elaine Adair said...

The stars are stunning - such beautiful work!

And congrats on the book photo invitation -- whoo hoooo!

Sew Create It - Jane said...

Stunning...and well done you for making 3! I've made 2 in my lifetime and I'm not sure there will ever be a third...it's a tough block!

Nadine said...

WOW, WOW, WOW ! Splendid !

OK, dear, it is obvious that you will open a class - sooner or later - and teach your talents. So, no matter when or where, would you pleazzzzzze book one seat for me - first row, first place, just next to you :>) - I promise I won't talk, nor ask any question (of course I can do that !), I'll just look, and listen, and look, and listen.... I'll work hard, and I'll be very obedient (of course, I'm serious !)

KLEM KLEM KLEM OG SMILLER :)

XOXOXOXOXOXOXO

Beautiful blocks Anne Ida !!

I had to giggle when I read about the baby basket.
I have a similar experience with a friend's baby basket. I am absolutely a quilter, not a tailor / domestic seamstress LOL

Chocolate Cat said...

Oh my goodness, these are amazing!

Inger Lise in Norway said...

Karen Dianne Lee said...

You'll never believe this - well, I hope you do. Its true.

Yesterday I was cleaning the living room and started thinking about you and the feathered star. I was thinking how you were encouraging me to make one.

Cosmic Love, *karendianne.

Christine said...

These blocks look amazing ... you are so clever. I can only dream of being able to piece like that. They will make a stunning quilt.
