Come join in on a fun week of learning the tips and tricks of piecing eight-pointed star quilts. The reason I wrote this book was for the beginner as well as the advanced piecer. I wanted a book that would be a skill builder for 8-pointed stars, so as you journey through the book you learn more creative steps in making more complex stars. There are no inset seams so don't worry about tackling that step.
A little bit about me: I think quilting is pretty additive, you piece one design and a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction leads you to a new and different technique, which takes you to learning skills and then to another project and before you know it you are hooked. I say it's a good addition. It is my therapy.
Over the years my sisters, and nieces get together for a 10 day sewing retreat, where we quilt, sew and follow other creative pursuits. These retreats have knitted our families together as well as made great memories.
The last pattern in the book is a bonus quilt project for children. Here is a picture of my nieces working on the Wedding Star.
If you wonder how these unique spiky cactus points are made in the Christmas Cactus continue to follow the blog tour and learn the secret.
I teach quilting and give lectures nationally and internationally. One of my latest travels has taken me to Dubai and Kuwait. I am starting to teach some online classes so check out my website for online quilt classes.
Follow along with fellow quilters as they share everything Diamond Star Quilts!
