Promise me you won't stay up late Tuesday night, or if you do you'll sleep in Wednesday morning. This isn't a difficult workshop, but it starts at 1pm and goes all the way until 8:30pm. That's late. Mistakes happen if you're tired. (Just so you know, I'm planning on a mid-morning nap.)
Make a cute little String Star quilt, about 33" x 33" before borders, in this 6-hour hands on workshop.
Learn about "pull" fabrics, strip-piecing, "tube" construction, and lots more as you machine-piece your way to the stars, er…star. This is a real stash-buster quilt and can be made totally scrappy happy, or with a controlled palate. The choice is yours. Border options will be discussed, but you'll make those at home.
Skill Level: Beginning, Intermediate
(Accurate cutting and piecing skills are presumed.)
Over-achievers may begin the cutting process at home ONLY if they can cut perfect strips, not zigzags. (Bring all leftover fabric to class.) Divide fabrics into three piles with the same number of fabrics in each: Favorite, Next Favorite, Least Favorite. Fold fabric selvage to selvage. Cut ONE strip from each fabric. Cut the fabrics in the first pile (Favorite) 2" wide. Cut fabrics in the second pile (Next Favorite) 1½" wide. Cut fabrics in the third pile (Least Favorite) 1" wide.
