There is a quilt block called Feathered Star that I am very fond of. Not that I've made anything using it, but I've always liked quilts made with it. Which is probably why the title of this piece sounded so familiar when I was thinking about it.
I'm realizing part of the problem with making a lot of small things is getting around to working steadily on larger, ongoing projects. So I'll buckle down soon and start work on some ducks. Ducks have a lovely shape to them. You'll see!
