Solstice Stars Series

Join me January 18 โ€“ 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 quiltersโ€“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.
