Isabella Isabella’s Star is a 2-color, 3-fabric quilt set on point. It measures approximately 83 x 83 inches. Feathered Stars are really quite easy when you follow the directions for sewing them that Linda has provided in the Inklingo Feathered Star Design Book.

This design uses the Inklingo 20″ Feathered Star Collection. I colored the blocks in EQ7 with fabrics from Stonehenge by Northcott.

Isabella was a popular name in my Williamson line. The first record I have for an Isabella is a baptism in 1832 in Lancashire, England. She was the second daughter and fourth child of Thomas and Margaret [Pollitt] Williamson. Sadly she died and was buried on 2 May 1833. Shortly after her parents emigrated from England to America in 1836, they had another daughter and named her Isabella. For a time in subsequent generations, there were one or two more daughters named Isabella in the Williamson families. It makes me wonder if I won’t find another Isabella back even farther in my Williamson or Pollitt lines.

    Such pretty quilt squares. I just wish I knew how to sew.

  • Nita says:

    Gorgeous quilts! A feathered star looks like it needs precision, and I’m not a precision sewer. I can, I just don’t most of the time. I love that you name your quilts after family members and give a little history on them. I think I may do that with the Christmas quilts I make for the grands this year. Of course the quilt will be theirs, but it’s title might include an ancestor’s name.
