This beautiful starry quilt is truly patchwork when made as a scrappy quilt. Mix and match your colors for that old fashioned patchwork look or use a three fabric combination (light, medium and dark) for a more modern day appearance.
Anita helps you with fabric selection, which fabrics work well and which fabrics you are better to leave in your stash for another project. She shows you how you can make this project without the need of purchasing a special ruler and she guides you through the process, step by step.
Her class includes an option for star sashing, options for alternative borders and multiple options for quilting, but best of all, if you are uncertain about any point or detail in the class, she will be there to answer your questions.
