About the Class
A star within a star...with splashes of yellow and black...mixed with scrappiness fabric wonder! We will be learning several methods of appliqué along with piecing the stars. The border looks more difficult than it is. We will learn how to use your 1 1/2" strip scraps to piece and attach this border to your finished blocks. This is a beautiful quilt where you can use your fabric scraps from your stash!
