Feathered Star QAL - tools & other materials

Jessie ZeiglerComment

I'm getting pretty excited to start the QAL! Have I mentioned that already?! Mayyyyybe a time or two. ;)

I'm teaming up with Fabric Shack to offer kits of the Robert Kaufman fabrics I'm using. I'm so, so pleased with the combination of Kona Cotton Solids (see photo for a teaser of my progress)! If you are interested buying all of your fabric with one click, check out the kit (2019 update: the kit is no longer available). All of the fabrics you'll need for the top & binding for only $68! :) Crazy good deal, huh?! Oh, and if you'd also like the backing, they can hook you up. The pattern will be sold separately, however.

In addition to thinking about the fabrics you'd like to use in your quilt top (yardage requirements listed here if you'd like to choose your own), I also wanted to list tools and other materials that you'll need, whether foundation paper piecing or using the Fierce Feathered Star sewing methods. These items are in addition to "basic sewing supplies" like a sewing machine, thread, scissors, seam ripper, rotary cutter, etc.

Let's make sure you have what you need, when you need it! 

If you're lucky enough to have a local quilt shop, check with them first. Otherwise, I'm including these Amazon Affiliate links for your easy access and so that you have a visual of the product. 

Need to have:

Add-A-Quarter ruler

Rotary ruler 12" square or larger

Rotary ruler with 16th-inch markings AND 45º line for trimming HSTs

Clear tape

Paper for printing foundation paper piecing templates (I usually use copy paper, but if you have a foundation paper that you prefer, stock up!)

Paper cutting scissors or a small rotary blade for cutting paper templates

Batting - Quilters Dream is my absolute fave! You'll just need to make sure to get a size that'll be larger than your top. The final dimensions of this quilt are 76" x 86".


Nice to have:

Washi or painters tape (optional)

Fabric glue (optional)

Strip cutting ruler (totally optional, I just loooooooooove mine because it makes cutting faster!)

Sewing clips (another optional tool for organization) 

Rotating cutting mat (optional, but oh-so-nice for trimming templates!)


We're getting closer to the start date and editing and polishing of the pattern is nearly complete! YAY!
