About the Class
Ages 16 and up
Use your scraps to make 12 1/2 inch wonky stars for an easy quilted throw using the quilt-as-you-go-method.
There will be a 45 minute lunch break on Sunday, so you may bring a bag lunch or go out.
What you need to bring:
Block Fabric: Bring all of your scraps to use and swap with the others. These colored scraps will make the star. For the background of each block, you may use all of your neutral scraps or bring approximately 2 yards of a neutral fabric. (The instructor will also have plenty of colored scraps to share if you don’t have your own scrap collection yet)
Front Joining strips: 1/2 yard fabric
Backing Fabric and Back Joining strips: 4 1/2 yards fabric

About Your Teacher, Lynn Davis
Lynn Davis has had a love for many fiber arts since childhood. Quilts are particularly special to her for their rich history and tradition of being stitched with love and out of necessity to keep a family warm. Lynn’s personal journey with quilts began in 2010 when she joined a local quilt guild. Her favorite quilts to make are one that are fast, fun and done. She now enjoys sharing the tips and techniques that she has tried with others, especially beginners, who want to tell their own quilt.
