Crazy for Lone Stars

The Lone Star quilt block is likely one of the oldest and most recognizable patterns to quilt.  It is known by many names and there are many variations, but the most common design uses diamond shaped blocks that form an eight-pointed star.  Often colors are chosen and placed to form secondary designs within the Lone Star.  There is often large background space where applique, quilting, or even that favorite fabric can be showcased.

For this retreat you can choose one of the many spectacular Quiltworx Lone Star designs to work on in class.  Some of the Lone Star patterns include Prismatic Star, Lakeshore Sunrise, Yogo Sapphire, Zen Garden, Prairie Star, Starry Night, or Rainbow Crystal.  A more complete list of pattern options is included in the class supply list.  There are both wall and queen size options.  Choose a pattern that uses a Quiltworx 2.5" strip set for  ease of fabric selection or design your own color layout.  Pattern is not included in class fee. 

The retreat will teach the Quiltworx foundation paper piecing techniques and discuss how to apply Judy's latest approaches to ensure your project assembles beautifully.

Kits will be available, or you can always create a custom fabric design.

The retreat will include 4 days of instruction, snacks, drinks, lunch, a goodie bag, and a pre-class preparation session to get you ready to begin sewing right away.
