Have you ever been drawn to the beauty of a lone star quilt? Have you been too scared to dive in and start, because of the stretchy bias within the lone star itself or the set-in seams (y-seams) that you have to complete to finish the quilt?
Please join Quintessential Quilts & Jodie Madison, a Judy Niemeyer (Quiltworx) Certified Instructor, on this 4-day retreat to make either of Judy Niemeyer's patterns - Tarnished Windmill (60" x 60") or Woodcarver's Star(99" x 99").
Jodie will lead us through using Judy Niemeyer's method of paper piecing to construct lone stars without the worry of bias stretching. Both quilts feature the traditional lone star along with other blocks that look like windmill blades and the spokes of a wagon wheel. Woodcarver's Star also features a broken star in addition to the traditional lone star, windmill blades, and spokes.
The best part of this quilt is that we construct a lone star without the dreaded set-in seams (y-seams), you will learn paper foundation
