 Simple but elegant, the feathered star patchwork pattern is pretty in the single block.

Red Feathered Star Lap Quilt Throw

I can still remember the first time I saw a feathered star quilt. It was hanging at a quilt show, in the back row, without any ribbon, not exactly a reject but not loved, either. The young quilter who had made it was sitting with her mother close by, although I didn't know that at first.

As I made a bee line for the quilt, I told the lady sitting next to the feathered star quilt this was one of my all-time favorite patchwork quilt patterns and I really liked the one she was sitting by. She beamed at the young quilter sitting next to her and I realized then the young woman next to her had made it.

Like most patchwork patterns, the patchwork patterns can take on different designs based on what fabrics are used. In this red feathered star quilt, reds, white and beige fabrics have been used, a basic elegant color palette that makes this design even more beautiful.

Here's the feathered star quilt in a bigger design with the feathered stars together:

Combined with the detailed border with the red stars, this is a lovely throw that will add an elegant touch to any room. I would be tempted to used is a quilted wall hanging so I could enjoy the design whenever I looked at it, wouldn't you?
