To celebrate the wonderful world of stars, until the end of May, we are offering 20% off our award-winning book, Oh My Stars!
With 14 different projects including Seven Sisters and many other 6-pointed star designs made easily with strip-piecing and without Y-seams. This book offers something for everyone. For new quilters, a simple First Stars wall hanging / table runner or Pretty in Pink is very easy. Here is Halie’s first quilt that she made when she was only 6, with some assistance from her neighbor. That is how easy this method is!
On her stars, one of the points was "chopped off", which with a little rework could be fixed. However, she decided and stated, “It's okay, because it’s like the stars in the sky, they are not all perfect.” That is a great attitude for anyone just learning to sew and quilt because perfect points come with experience. That includes realizing what is "perfect enough".
From someone who has more experience, here is what Shelagh D. from California had to say about the stars: “Took the class at a local shop and was amazed at how easy it was to make such great-looking stars. I got carried away and made it much larger than planned at first.”
Shelagh, from my point of view, those points look perfect to me!
See what our customers have made in the gallery and reach for your own stars with Oh My Stars! Regularly $29.95 (USD), now on sale at $23.95 (USD).
To follow up on the last newsletter, we are continuing to add our Possibilities books and patterns to our website, in the Books section and in the Attic. We have limited numbers of these titles, and once they are sold out, they will not be reprinted. Since we do not focus on selling individual patterns, they are priced to move at $5, $3, and $1(USD). The books are currently priced at the original retail price and we will be featuring a different one each week. Here is Favorite Quilts Fast & Fun by Nancy Smith and Lynda Milligan which we found to include timeless favorites of Nine Patch, Bear’s Paw, Variable Star, Log Cabin, House Block, Tree Block, and a more intricate Stepping Stones.
With yardage and layout for crib, lap, twin, double/queen, and king size for each design, and options of planned vs. scrappy, this is a great resource with a lot of possibilities for beautiful, comforting quilts. Get your copy at 25% off through May 9, for only $14.95 (USD).
