Stargazing - Saturday Sampler 2019
Saturday January 12th 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
Introducing our Saturday Sampler, Block of the Month Quilt for 2019, ‘Stargazer’. Our Saturday Sampler meets once a month, the second Saturday of the month, for 10-months - January through October. A portion of the quilt will be completed each month with the goal of having a completed quilt top by the end of the year. Students who bring a completed block to from the previous month to class will receive a free fat-quarter to be used on the current months' block.
Marcus Brothers: Our NEW AGED MUSLINS have become a quilter's favorite new basic, often mixed in with Marcus prints for an interesting alternative to true solids. Now, designer Krisanne Watkins of Quail Valley Quilts brings us "Stargazing" a beautiful new BOM program that casts these gorgeous colors and subtle textures in their own starring role...
Pure and simple, Krisanne's design was inspired... by color itself. "Color adds so much depth and texture to my world. My design inspiration for 'Stargazing' is based on that premise. The beautiful, rich colors of New Aged Muslins served as the spark of inspiration to design a new project." Krisanne adds interest to the program by naming each star after a celestial body, such as Pegasus, Orion, Vega and others."
Over the 10-month process, quilters will immerse themselves in these saturated, not-quite-solid tones, using easy piecing techniques to create this 92" x 92" masterpiece.
