Straight Line and Rolling Feathers,...... INSPIRED by a pattern from the Eleanor Burns Star Log Cabin Book, Colorado Log Cabin with Stars

Recommended Posts


Thank you for your overwhelming interest in this piece I quilted for my client back in 2015.  

many have inquired about the pattern for the quilt as well as the digital patterns for the quilting.  

I have attached the book used to inspire this piece as my client did do modifications to the pattern 

for the Stars to fit her liking.  

The Quilting was all freehand on my APQS Milli.  of course,... you could use a feather stencil or digital feather design 

and a ruler for the straighline work... 

I hope this helps anyone looking to make this quilt,.. or a version of it,.. :)

Happy Quilting

I did point out mistake to customer and we both decided it needed to be fixed. 

so,... spent an afternoon picking out stitches,  and 10 minutes to restitch the Feather,...

I was happy to do it as it was my mistake,.... 

I always point out mistakes if any,.. big or small

and let the customer decide,.... 

this one I knew she would want fixed,.... 

She is very pleased with the end result!!! 

and so am I!!! 

Thanks for looking ,.... 

Happy Quilting,...






Love the combination of the two,...  Simple,.. with a pop!!! 

I used a double Cotton Batting on this one,..  wanted the feathers to stand up

and take center stage,... Matching Glide Threads in the Grey, Burgundy and White Areas,...

Thanks for looking,...


** can you see the mistake?  Found it after I pulled it off the frame,....  :0)

Very Pretty! Is the mistake the feather that crossed out of the  straightline quilting in the first pic?


Hi Debbie,...  If you look at the top Center Feather Inset,...  I stitched the WRONG feather!!! 

All I can think is,... I must have stitched it out and then called it quits for the night,... then when

I started again,... Started with the center and went from there,...  did not realize it until I was photographing it!!!
