Starfall Quilt Top

Starfall Quilt Top

If you are a regular visitor here, you know I’m teaching in a couple weeks at the Sewing Summit in Salt Lake City. One of the techniques we will be practicing is partial seams.

I decided to make a quilt that features a few partial seam blocks. We won’t be making this quilt in class, but hopefully you will feel comfortable with this technique by the time you get home, so you can make your own partial seam blocks.

In other news….tonight is the third Naperville Modern Quilt Guild meeting!

I’ll be doing a little presentation on “What is Modern Quilting”. I’ll bring this quilt finished too! If you live in the area, I hope you will come!

    This is gorgeous, Faith! How many solid background colors do you have in this piece? Is it just gray and white, or is there an off-white as well? I REALLY like how the whites and grays make some blocks recede and others come forward; it makes it so much more interesting.

    PARTIAL seams? The more I learn, the more I realize just how much I still don’t know. I’m probably a thousand miles from Naperville. Any chance you might do a tutorial on the partial seams here on your blog, pretty please with sugar and a cherry on top? ;-)

    I love this. Are you going to offer the pattern?

    I hope hope hope you are going to do a pattern/tutorial/sew along, or something, here online for those of us not going to Sewing Summit. When I was scrolling through things on my iphone, this quilt just popped off the screen! It is gorgeous–the colors, design, everything!

    I’d never heard of partial seams either. Neat! I hope you do decide to drop a little tutorial after TSS.
