About the Class
Have you ever wanted to make a lone star but it seems intimidating? Ever wanted to try your hand at making a Christmas tree skirt? This class combines both, but you can keep the lone star and use it in a quilt instead. Jennifer has made dozens of lone stars, taught classes, and
designed quilt patterns using lone stars. She loves making them and will guide you in doing the same. This pattern uses a strip piecing method, which helps simplify both construction and fabric placement. She will share her tips for accurate piecing, show you how to sew a y-seam for the background pieces, and how to finish the tree skirt.
Sixteen years ago Jennifer walked into a quilt shop expecting to make one quilt and check it off her bucket list. Instead, she discovered a medium for exploring color, texture, design, and storytelling which quickly eclipsed all other creative interests. She is an avid quilter, blogger, pattern writer, and mom to 8 kids. Jennifer believes that creativity is one of our deepest yearnings and that it deserves to be included in everyday life. Her quilts are both an exercise in creativity and a search for hope and light in her daily life. She believes that quilts will matter so long as we have arms to wrap around each other. In addition to quilting, she enjoys reading biographies, writing, spending time with her husband and 8 children, and growing lavender. She blogs about quilts and life at hopefulhomemaker.com.
