I really try to expand my repertoire with each quilt I design. I achieve this by incorporating a new technique; whether it be in the quilting, piecing, or appliqué, somewhere in my layout. A feathered star quilt is o ne that I have been longing to make, yet I have evaded this design due to the odd angles. I realize a feathered star is far from being a new skill; but I continue to side step any forward motion due to insecurities . I do very little executing on the EQ 7 but admittedly I have played around with the feathered star (see below picture).
Unfortunately no “YES!” moments have emerged, or any results that I perceive to love. So I suppose I will have to persevere and hope one day I will have a light bulb moment and a feathered star quilt design will appear in my head.
Who else has a technique they have been meaning to try? Or maybe there is a quilt design that you have thoughts of completing?
