A feathered star quilt has long been on my bucket list. I saw a quilt made using the Star of Chamblie pattern by Marsh McCloskey at a quilt show last fall and thought it might actually be do-able for me. This book (booklet really) has detailed instructions for the feathered star blocks with a variety of center designs, plus instructions for putting the blocks together as shown. Finished as shown on the cover, the quilt is 67.5" square.
Tributes and Treasures is by Paula Barnes and Mary Ellen Robison of Red Crinoline Quilts. I think most, if not all, of the quilts in the book were previously published as individual patterns. For example, in 2012, I made Boughs of Holly from a pattern called Crossroads that is in this book.
However, the other designs are new to me and first on my list will be this quilt below, called Plantation Road. I just need to find a toile print that coordinates with fabric in my stash. All the designs in Tributes and Treasures are consistent with the designers' Civil War reproduction aesthetic, though they can look very different when made in non-reproduction fabrics.
The third book, Simply Color Green, is closer to the modern end of the quilt design spectrum. The author, Vanessa Christenson, has authored a series of six with each book focused on a different color. Each book covers color theory, with a few projects.
