Solstice Stars Series

Join me January 18 – February 15!

Fabric Requirements: I estimate that each 12.5 inch (unfinished) quilt block will take the equivalent of a fat quarter to make.

Quilting Basics: There are many helpful online tutorials for beginning quilters–Elizabeth Hartman of Oh Fransson! has a great series here: Quilt Making Basics.

Advanced Techniques: We will be doing some paper piecing and most likely some y-seams. I will provide instructions in the tutorials, but if you’d like to get a jump start on learning these new skills, you can find tutorials on my blog here (paper piecing) and here (y-seams).

Fresh Lemons Quilts Flickr Group: I’d love to see your fabric selections, process shots, and answer any questions through the Fresh Lemons Quilts Flickr group.

  • I always think of @amybutlerdesign when I think about my start to quilting. I discovered her fabric and her book, In Stitches, and 9 years ago I made this quilt. My *first* quilt *just for me*! I couldn’t believe I had done it! And it didn’t look terrible! 🤣 @craftindustryalliance has organized a tribute to Amy today, as she moves on from the quilting industry. #thanksamybutler for being an inspiration!
  • I think it is *just* about time to break out my Halloween quilt, using Nightshade fabric by @tulapink and @oakshottfabrics cottons. This quilt was made using my Prism quilt pattern. #halloween #quilt #modernquilt #halloweenquilt
  • ❤️ Now to make about 20-something more.
  • Ok creative friends...what should I make with this awesome Halloween fabric I scooped up just after LAST Halloween? Designed by the founding Cotton + Steel crew, @wattsalot and @alexiamarcelleabegg . #halloween #fabric
  • A little fun, decompressing sewing after wrapping up a long project. 🙌🏼
  • I’m all set to volunteer in the sewing unit of FACS (Family and Consumer Science) at my daughter’s junior high today! Pin from @makervalley
  • I finished my #summersampler2018 quilt! I’m so excited to share my finished quilt on the blog today, and am leaving this summer more inspired than ever. #moderntraditional #quiltalong #sampler #rainbow
