Starry Starry Night

I my previous post, I offered to lend a Deb Tucker Rapid Fire LeMoyne Star template to anyone interested in trying it out before purchasing it. This week, I'm offering free hands-on lessons in the shop using the ruler to make various sized eight pointed stars.  I find the ruler invaluable in making blocks for our local Georgetown Quilters group using red white and blue fabrics for local veterans' quilts and wall hangings.  Come in and try your skills in 'making and taking'  a block of whichever size will fit your project, or make one and donate it to our quilt group for the veterans. And if you want to 'quilt as you go' with your new star block, I'll help you free-motion quilt your block using a portable domestic machine in the shop, outfitted with feed dogs that go down and an embroidery/darning/hopping foot. (I don't stock the feet but can help you find and order them online or from a dealer who sells only those parts she  has pre-tested.)

Come and visit Quilters' Quarters to see and use these templates. Fabric for on the spot lesson provided free. All  purchased fabric is discounted 20%, unless you are making a charity quilt, in which case fabric is sold at wholesale price of 50% off retail. The shop is open Thursday, Friday and Saturday, from noon to 5pm. If those hours do not fit your schedule, call Terry at Quilters' Quarters to arrange another time for a visit. 

Watch our Facebook page for more free lessons at Quilters' Quarters! Thank you for reading this, and please feel free to share this with your friends who enjoy learning quilting techniques.

Happy Quilting!
