The “Feathered Star” pattern of this quilt is a variation of the Star motif that figures prominently in the patchwork quilt library of designs. The pattern is geometric, made only of square and rectangular patches, yet this seemingly restricted format allows almost endless inventiveness with shapes and colours. Here the quilter has limited herself to red and white, highlighting the clear beauty of the star pattern.
