Forty Fabulous Years with Eleanor Burns Part 8

Isn't this a special one?  The Liberty Star is all kinds of flash and beauty.  It looks challenging doesn't it? It's strip pieced!  Our only challenge is finessing it to a precise 12" finished block. 

Our second adventure for this month's Forty Fab is The Christmas Star.  This block has lots of pieces but it's so worth it.  Look how interesting it is!

Let's get these FABULOUS blocks made!

Please bring to class:

  • Your Forty Fabulous Years textbook
  • Your selected fabrics for your blocks, already cut for your preferences as referred to in the text.  Remember to use the coloring sheets and fabric cutting labels given to you in class if you wish.
  • Your sewing machine - remember your power cord, foot petal, and 1/4" foot
  • Your small cutting mat and rotary cutter (large ones will be available in the classroom for your use)
  • Your basic machine sewing tools and supplies including thread, bobbins, seam ripper (you know, just in case someone else needs to borrow one), thread snips, etc.
  • Your 6" x 12", 4" x 14" or similar sized acrylic ruler that use can easily maneuver to mark and cut your smaller fabric pieces
  • Your  6" square up ruler 
  • Your 2" x 4" finished flying geese ruler (if you're doing 6" finished blocks, substitute a 1" x 2' finished flying geese ruler)
  • Your lunch

Please note:
Laurie will have a sample of each of the rulers mentioned available for your classroom use - realize this may require sharing with others.  Also available in the classroom for your use are ironing boards, irons, large cutting mats and rotary cutters.
