The Radiant Star
For a long while now I’ve been coveting feathered stars. . .
Is that not absolutely gorgeous? This quilt, entitled “Buckskin”, was made by Marla Yeager of Ava, Missouri. It was featured on the cover of the September 2007 issue of Quilters Newsletter, and is deservedly prizewinning. You can see the whole quilt here.
And just look at these beauties, made by the author of Moonstitches.
The mexican pinwheel.
… and the radiant star.
Even though I didn’t have the means to procure the pattern before the end of the week, I decided to give the radiant star a try with the fabrics for JQ in the Craftster Lap quilt swap I’m participating in.

I’m even able to overlook the crooked centre piece since most of the seams actually lined up!
I hope he likes it!
