This is a delightful modern improv spikey star, which will work well for beginners and accomplished sewers alike.
Helen delights in sharing her love of patchwork with a modern twist, and this spikey star is no exception.
Originally designed for the Quilters Guild, Helen is happy to share the details with us.
THe block is made simply from 10″ squares – so a layer cake is perfect ; make an assymetrical 9 patch and then add the spikes.
In this workshop Helen has used wonderful Oakshott fabrics, but fabrics with a right and wrong side might be less confusing.
The seam allowance on this improv quilt doesn’t really matter – so great for beginners – and then you get to square-up the block at the end, so perfect for group quilts.
