Lone Star Basics - Love that Lone Star!

Instructor: Jan Krentz

Quilt A

Quilt B

Have you ever wanted to make a lovely quilted Lone Star wall hanging or lap quilt for your home? Here's your chance to learn quick strip piecing techniques to create the central star without templates. You may finish your quilt as a large square, learning to set in the corner squares and borders, or you may choose to make an octagonal design by adding triangles around your star. These techniques may be used later for a large bed-sized quilt if you desire. We are making a wall-hanging size quilt in class. Please, purchase all fabric prior to class. Complete the design "paste-up" and preview your design in the hinged mirrors. Achieve accuracy when cutting by folding the fabric neatly and always align the ruler from the fold when cutting strips. Basic knowledge of rotary cutting and straight strip-piecing is required. CLASS PREPARATION BEFORE YOU COME: Pre-wash fabrics (if making a quilt you plan to wash) gather all tools, supplies & equipment cut fabrics and make your "paste-up" diamond wedge ­gluing fabrics into place. (we will use this design mock-up through the entire class, so you WILL need it. Frosted tape is not recommended to adhere the fabrics, due to poor visibility through the tape.) cut fabrics as indicated on the fabric chart ­ modify if you have changed fabrics in your design.

You'll need one strip of fabric for EACH diamond on the paste-up.

CLASS ACTIVITIES: Please arrive and set up 30 minutes before class starts. I want you to get the most from your day, because I have lots of great information to share! 1. Previewing the star to check for fabric placement (before class) 2. Strip piecing techniques, including finding the 1/4" seam allowance on your machine 3. Assembling strip sets (see page 4.

FABRIC REQUIREMENTS & PASTE-UP SHEET

Select the prominent, large-scale print for the corner squares and coordinating print you want to use for the outer border. Working from the colors in those "focus fabrics", select additional fabrics for the star. Remember to VARY the SCALE of the prints you choose. You will like the fabrics if you have a variety of colors and contrast in the star, print, and outer border. **It is a good idea to use the border & binding fabrics as one of the choices in the star. This helps the colors to flow from the center to the outer edges of your design. Be sure you have LIGHT, MEDIUM, and DARK colors in your selection.

All strips are full width (selvage to selvage) PASTE SWATCH HERE AMOUNT TO BUY WHAT to CUT
