Big Star Quilted Cushions

This week I got these cushions finished.....

They started as a test block for a lap quilt I am making.  I liked the block so much I decided to make another and turn them into a pair of cushions. 

I quilted feathers all over, although they do not show up too well on the darker patterned fabric.

I saw this block being demonstrated by Jenny from the Missouri Star Quilt Company.  You can find the tutorial here.    Jenny uses 10" squares with her block finishing at 25".   I did a slightly smaller version, using 8" squares to give me a finished block of 17".

I have used this block for a lap quilt I'm making....  here's a wee sneaky peek

I am having a lot of fun with these feathers - just the borders to finish quilting then it will be ready for binding.
So hopefully I will be back very soon with another finish.
See you then.

Very pretty! Love your feathers. They're so even - Some day I will grow up and be able to do that. ;D
