Lone Star Quilt





This workshop utilizes the “cut no diamond” technique.  The fabrics and instructions provided allow you to make a star large enough to fit any size bed rather than just adding borders as suggested in the original book instructions.  I have done all the math for you to use five, six, or seven fabrics in your star and repeat them in a border row.  If the students do pre-class sewing as provided in the pre-class instructions, many will have their quilt top sewn together in 7 - 8 hours of class.

I learned the technique used in a book by Jane Hill and Betty Gall.  I believe the book is out of print but it is a wonderful technique.  The cutting and class instructions have been rewritten and improved several times since 1991 when I first taught this class.
