Learn how to tackle 8 pointed stars and create your own version of a Lone Star quilt. In this class we will cover y-seams, sewing bias edges and how to nest angled seams to create precise points. We will talk about how to scale the design, and go over different types of layouts from traditional to off center grids. Students will start on a mini quilt and learn the basics of construction that can be applied to any size Lone Star.

About the Instructor:

She started to quilt around 2001 and along the way, her love of quilting led to school and a career in textile design, with clients including Michael Miller Fabrics and Pottery Barn Kids. Tara draws inspiration from the simple bold geometry of antique quilts, the gorgeous bright colors of textiles from around the world, and the freedom and spontaneity found in unconventional quilts. She uses simple geometry, complex color interaction and always strives to find the line that exists somewhere between harmony and discord.
