Feathered Stars

Made by Jennifer in our Lone star class. Jennifer is a young gal of about 24, and it thrills me to have girls start out in quilting at such a young age!

This one is also Jennifer's quilt...it was in my mystery class, which turned out to be a feathered star!
This feathered star is made by Kim, Jennifer's mom....she is a perfect piecers...you should see the back side of her work...I could take a lesson!!

Cindy's quilt...she changed out the original feather points for the dark strip, which looked fabulous and better than the feathers. African fabric made it really sing!

This landscape is mine, made for our guild challenge. All will be donated to the LaConner Quilt Museum for a fundraiser during the tulip festival. I hope we raise lots of money!

Hi all...today is a strange weather day here...sunny with a mist falling, and now it is very cloudy....typical for here in the spring, I guess. But it is much better than snow and cold.

Our trees are blooming, the forsythia is nearing the end already, and I have daffodils in full bloom. The koi are looking for lunch, and I think all are accounted for, but it is hard to take a nose count while they are swimming around so fast, and switching spots. I still have not seen the 2 catfish, but I imagine if food starts to appear, so will they!!
All the other critters are fine, even our new stray cat that is still hanging around. I will have to post his picture soon....he waits to be fed every day, breakfast, lunch and dinner...his little belly is getting pretty fat. I wonder where he came from.

Today I am working on a really neat applique quilt, and will post a picture when I am done. It belongs to my friend Lorraine Jones who owns Seawatchfabric.com...check it out some time. She has great fabrics...asian and batiks mostly. THis quilt will be available by kit I think.
NExt up will be Freddy's quilts. She is at Asilomar this week teaching with Gwen Marston. I bet everyone is having a ball. My friend SuSan is there as well taking classes from Lura Schwarz Smith...I posted one of her quilts last time.
I am going to post some of the feathered stars the girls made in my class last Saturday....they did a great job. Cindy used African fabric and did one without all the little feathers...it is great....Marsha McCloskey has a new book and ruler you might want to check out. Check out her website.....MarshaMcCloskey.com I wish I knew how to do those link things. I will have to experiment with that, or get my guru here again.

Well, gotta eat some breakfast before I forget, and get to work. I have a long commute!! I will feed the goats and alpacas on the way across the pasture. Have a great day. Judy
