About the Event
**This is a 2 session class. Thursdays, February 20 & 27 from 6-8pm.**
Let's make a snub-nosed stars. No points, no fuss. This is a very liberating and fun quilt to make. The quilt block and setting is based on a vintage quilt made from old clothes - mostly shirts, so feel free to rummage through your closet, hit the thrift store, or bring your scraps and let's make do.
We will cover block construction of the snub-nosed star (similar to making a nine-patch) including how to "cut off" the points, working with clothing vs yardage, sashing and sewing the blocks into a quilt top.
Skill level: ✂️✂️
Anyone with basic sewing/quilting skills is welcome. The ability to sew a straight 1/4" seam and rotary cutting experience is required.
About the Instructor:
Fern Royce grew up surrounded by textiles and what we now call “makers.” She learned to sew when she was very young, but did not begin quilting until the mid 1990’s. She took quilting classes at her local quilting store, learning the basics including the “all cotton” rule. That rule seemed odd when she considered the quilts she grew up with, including the corduroy quilt her grandmother made for her from the scraps of the all the clothes she had made for her grandchildren. In Fern’s experience, quilts meant using what was on hand, using or reusing any type of fabric, including clothing. When you look at her quilts you will see that she often includes repurposed and unconventional textiles in her own quilts, following her own rule: if she likes it, she uses it - from wool to silk, linen, or the unknown.
