How to Begin a Feathered Star Block

Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting | 1000 Series | Episode 1002

We have a stunning quilt for you on these two episodes. It was made by a national quilter, Marsha McCloskey, and it’s called Radiant Blue. We’re going to be spending two programs on this quilt because there are so many wonderful techniques to teach you. You’ll be a real pro after you make it.

On show 1002 we’ll show you how to make the Feathered Star quilt block. We show how to use triangle trimmers for more accurate piecing, how to use a bias strip method for half-square triangles, and how to make corner units for the feather star block. You can view part 2 of this  feathered star quilt block here. For more information about this episode, including a supply list, visit
