Faith Jones of Fresh Lemons Quilts has launched a five-week series of star quilt block tutorials called Solstice Stars. Inspired by Nancy Cabot’s 1930 Quilt Collection, the tutorials will post every Wednesday, beginning January 18th and ending on February 15th, to engage ones paper piecing, triangle, and y-seam skills.
I am joining the fun to create a whole quilt that comprises of ONLY five blocks for my new office and to work with the color … GRAY. Gray has never been a favorite color of mine and I have never used it in a quilt. But growth in all areas of modern quilting is important, even if it is around a single color. So here are my print fabric selections in addition to Kona Cotton solids coal, bone, lemon and herb. Check back to see my completed stars.
