Feathered Star Layouts

090813I made a bunch of layouts in EQ6 and like these 2 and can’t decide which one I like better.  Which do you like – 1 or 2?

Now, to go and see if I have enuf of the lighter green fabric to make either version!  If I don’t, I will have to have another plan.

The setting triangles on the FS present an upcoming decision – what do I want to quilt there?  It’s a pretty big area.  Flowers?  Leaves on a vine?  Geometric?  Abstract?  I’m sure the quilt will talk to me as I work on it.  It happens every time!  The quilt seems to know what it wants.

Both settings look good, but I am slightly partial to #1. I like the movement they create! big is this ????
I have not attempted a Feathered Star, but it is such a lovely pattern. I am really glad you made this one so I can enjoy having seen it, but don't have to do one myself! LOL

Sunnie, the block measures 15" (Fin). I will be setting it on-point and that measures 21" (Fin). This will probably be the last Feathered Star I make ... too many pieces. Too many matchy points. I really appreciate the quilts I've seen with multiple Feathered Stars in them.

i like #2 because it mirrors the triangle point instead of folloing it :)
