Feathered Star

For the past two days I've been working on this Feathered Star Quilt.  It started with the desire to do something with the leftover fabrics from Jessica's baby clothes quilts.  I'm going to add another single row of those baby clothes squares around the outside and then when the time comes binding it in gray.

This is the one and I believe only Feathered Star that I'll be making.  You can find the pattern at Quilter's Cache under 20"+ blocks.  I didn't have quite enough of the hand dyed fabric to make the block 2 colors and added in the gray, which I think works nicely throughout.

When I look at this photograph I'm surprised.  The squares are all shades of purple.  Sort of makes you say "hu" over the things a photograph can do.
