Instructor: Debby Kratovil
Bernina sewing machines are being furnished, compliments of our sponsor, for Debby’s classes. You do not need to bring a sewing machine. Educators will be in the classroom at 8:30am to help you familiarize yourself with the sewing machines, so the class can start on time.
Traditionally sewn by hand, this vintage block can be created entirely by machine, too. Using quick rotary cut kite shapes, you will learn how easy it is to sew three together using a simple (and doable) y-seam. Twenty-four units are then stitched into the Rose Star Block with ONLY straight seams. The coloring chart in the supply list helps you plan your
fabrics before you finalize them…. and you can make it in a variety of sizes. Make one, and it’s a large table topper. Make several and you have the beginnings of an amazing full-sized quilt. Debby will discuss how to “square up” the blocks to work them into a larger quilt, and discuss adding borders to the hexagon shape (to make it larger). Finished size of ‘one’ is 30” x 34”. Skill level: confident beginner up. Kit fee explained in supply list PDF.
