Are you intrigued by the beauty and complexity of Lonestar Quilts? Tami Johnson has developed a technique for planning and making your own Lonestar Quilt design! Her unique pattern guide is included in the cost of this class and will be a valuable resource for future designs. This three-day course will teach you beyond the basics of theory and technique and build confidence as you sew a stunning Lonestar, all your own!
In class one, of this 3 class series, you will learn how color placement effects the Lonestar design, draft your color design options and the mathematics that will enable you to create a Lonestar specific to your desired design and size as well as determining the yardage required for your personalized Lonestar.
Classes two and three will be spent cutting, pinning, sewing, and pressing. Followed by more cutting pining, sewing and pressing! You will learn the techniques to create and complete your beautiful design accurately.
There is no kit provided for this class but it's an excellent opportunity to dig into your stash and use up scraps! Or stop in the quilt shop and let us help you select fabrics.
