Common Bride QA - Week 4

Welcome to our Common Bride Quilt Along!

This week we will be making our Feathered Star Center block!

Are you ready to shine?

I am quilting using the Common Bride Fabric Kit and adding some scraps from my stash.

You can use this same kit or this is a perfect time to select some beauties from your own stash and enjoy all your fabrics to make this design your own!

Who's ready to start?

Please don't forget to refer back to your Common Bride pattern for cutting measurements.
