Please notice that there is two Amish Star Samples in the store. One is larger and uses scraps of brights. The other is a pillow in the 1800's section that uses just three fabrics...not counting the background. Both use the same technique but the size of the strips vary.
The bright model uses a variety of strips cut 2 1/2". I suggest selvedge to selvedge until you have the system down and then you may improvise your own layout. The bright star uses seven fabrics in each point some of which are repeated in other points.
I suggest you wait to purchase the background fabrics as everyone's measurements may be different and I want you to learn how to calculate for YOUR quilt.
PLEASE LABEL YOUR SUPPLIES WITH YOUR NAME.
6 or 6 1/2" X 24" ruler with 45 mark, paper and pencil for note taking, pins, rotary cutter and whatever else you need to be comfortable...bring your lunch if you like.
Please phone me at the Orange Quilt Bee if you have any questions.
