This 8 pointed star block has been extracted from Rosebud Fayre block of the month series.
An 8 pointed star can be a challenge with it’s inset or Y seams but as always Jennie makes it all look easy. You can find in this video very comprehensive instructions and workshop notes. Thus, you do it her way you will have a great result.
Jennie gives you alternatives for two different sizes – 10″ and 12″ blocks.
You will also find out how to use your ruler to cut long diamonds and use the angles too. You always wonder why they were there!
This star was an alternative block for the corners but really does stand up on it’s own.
If you would like to learn more about the Rosebud Fayre quilt, you can enjoy the taster: in this video Jennie & Val talk about making this lovely quilt in installments. This is perfect for beginners but there will also be some challenges for those more accomplished sewers.
The name Rosebud Fayre was taken from the range of fabrics that were used. Noticeably, it was designed by the UK company Makower – the Henley Quilt Studio.
We have another workshop on inset seams from Jennie in which she uses the tumbling block as an example. Сlick here to enjoy it.
