More Tiny Triangles

Finally! I just found a copy of this book (I'd been prowling the used bookstores forever). I forget now where I first heard it mentioned, but Marsha McCloskey's feathered star blocks have intrigued me for some time. They aren't any different from any other kind of block except that hers are far more complicated than what you ordinarily see and her color choices are always really cool. So now I have the book and I'm going to do a little experimenting. Stay tuned.

Anyone that has a feathered star block to show off, post here. I want to see anything you've got. Single blocks, tops, finished quilts, whatever.


Carrie left me a comment on this post to share a feathered star block she's made. y'all go look at it at CARRIE'S FEATHER Its gorgeous.


  1. Congrats on the book! I'd love to look at it next time. Can't wait for our shopping spree later today!

  2. Looks like a great book. Can't wait to see what you come up with. I have not made a feathered star block, although I have admired them.

  3. I just purchased the same book. I like her books and look forward to making a star but it will be a while.

  4. I just came across your blog, and it just so happens, I made a feathered star block today. You can see it on my blog http://carieshields.wordpress.com/ I'll watch to see what you come up with.
