No Y Seam Feathered Star - FREE pattern

Let me email you my free 20-page pattern for making your own feathered star block... without the y-seams!

Included are foundation paper piecing templates for three different sizes of the block: 8", 12" and 16".  You'll also find suggestions for choosing your fabrics, yardage requirements, an optional cutting chart if you're like me and pre-cut your fabrics. :)  There are also instructional photos throughout to help you line up your fabrics just right.

This block would be great as a stand-alone mini quilt for yourself or a swap, or go all out and design your own quilt based on this classic!

I'd love to see the magic YOU create!

*Just a note here that the pattern is not a tutorial on how to foundation paper piece. If you are comfortable with paper piecing, you should be able to complete this block with no issues. But, if paper piecing is new to you,  check out my 9-part video tutorial series. It details how to complete each aspect of this block, perfect for even a beginner!

Download your free feathered star coloring page, too!  If you'd like to make the rainbow version, there is a free companion PDF cutting guide for that, as well - I've got you covered!

A few troubleshooting notes:

If you get an error saying you've made too many attempts or to wait 5 minutes, it's likely an issue with your browser's auto-fill function. Please try disabling auto-fill or sign up using another browser.

If you get a notice saying that you've already signed up, you might want to check your spam/junk/promotions folder for the pattern, your email provider might route my email to somewhere other than your inbox... the nerve!! :)

Due to printing problems some experienced with the first version, I totally revamped the pattern and uploaded the new version 10/27/16. Error-free printing for all!! You can use the original pattern link to access the updated version.

Lastly, just reach out to me at if you need any assistance, I'm always happy to help!
