There are unprecedented design options for stunning Feathered Star Quilts thanks to Inklingo innovations for sewing and pressing precise triangles.
Since printing with Inklingo is such a fast, accurate way to prepare the shapes, you can afford to spend time perfecting your design and choosing fabric, like Kathy in TN.
Kathy is an expert quilter—but Feathered Star is not just for experts anymore!
Inklingo is all about making quilting more accessible. That means making it easier for beginners and also keeping experienced quilters inspired.
With that in mind, Inklingo has a totally new approach to Feathered Star.
One of several innovations with Inklingo Feathered Star is that you can use standard blocks in the center to give create your own unique variations! (red box above).
Insert any 4.5, 6 or 9 inch block for small, medium and large Feathered Star blocks!

Feathered Star is a wonderful example of ways you can print a few sheets of fabric with your ordinary Inkjet printer to sew hundreds of triangles into feathers.
Print one fabric and layer with un-printed fabric.
Sew along the diagonal lines. (It is so fabulous to have a line to sew along!)
Cut . . .
. . . and press!
You might be surprised that making a Feathered Star can be condensed into an 80 second video. That's seconds, not minutes.
The printing, cutting, sewing and pressing whiz past very quickly in the video, but don't worry! The Inklingo Feathered Star Design Book includes detailed instructions for designing, sewing, and pressing your Feathered Star Quilt and it is free when you buy the shapes to print on fabric ($20 value).
