Lone Star and Lone Star Variations

Lone Star and Lone Star Variations

Come join us for a quilt workshop to expand the boundaries of your skills and creativity.

Learn to turn out a variety of dazzling Lone Stars that match at the corners and lay flat!

The Lone Star is one of the visually simplest and yet most stunning of traditional quilt patterns. The 8-pointed star is made up of smaller diamonds and creates a visual effect of color and pattern radiating from the center of the star out to its points. This is a class for intermediate quilters or advanced beginner quilters with a love of precision and craftsmanship. This class is not appropriate for beginning quilters unless they are experienced with other sewing arts. The class will start with a small lone star so that students can work through the basic construction techniques. We will then move on to planning and executing a larger version. We will also explore other variations where you can use your skills in new designs, such as the inverted star shown below. This is a workshop-style class where the technique will be taught in class and then there will be time for quilters to work with their own machines and materials during class.


Materials List:

Students should bring a rotary cutter, mat and 24-inch ruler, and a sewing machine in good working order with thread and threaded bobbin.

Students should bring 1/4 yard to ½ yard selvedge-to-selvedge cuts of 4 fabrics they

feel would combine well in their first lone star. There should be good contrast between the fabrics to show off the design. Students should bring ½ to 1 yard of another fabric suitable for the background of the star.
