On an episode of HGTV’s ‘Simply Quilts”, I was challenged to create something using the Feathered Star Block. The Feathered Star Block is one monster of a block, so they called it the Monster Block Challenge. I was inspired to create a large purse that featured the block and I called it the Monster Purse. You can make this large purse using the feathered star block or you can use a block of your own choosing. For something even easier, you can replace the block with a fabric panel. We have also included two patterns for different sized purses and a complete quilt pattern for those of you who prefer to make a quilt. The choice is yours!
