Last week I talked about fabrics to use for Anita's Christmas quilt and this week, I wanted to follow on with what is in the first two parts of this Block of the Month pattern.

Part One

This part includes the center block of our feathered star. The original block is an eight-pointed star that uses y-seam construction and templates - both are included in the pattern.

However, we know that not everyone likes to create y-seams so we have included a Saw Tooth block with instructions on how to make it fit the feathered star center so you can simply omit the y-seam joins. In fact, the instructions given will allow you to use any 12" star block. The Saw Tooth block can also be used as one of the border blocks.

Part Two

This part includes the outer two blocks of the feathered star - that's the corner block and the side block.

Making those feathers can be tricky as it is easy to sew a seam slightly skew-whiff. So for this reason, we have also included paper piecing templates so you can make sure those joins are perfect.
