New quilt design – Expanded Broken Star


Tuesday, December 20th, 2011

What a great sewing time at home in my studio! During the Quick Star workshops, students request additional designs.

Pushing the envelope by¬†adding more layers, I am developing expanded designs that will become workshops in the near future. I would love to know your thoughts about this design¬†‚ąí please comment below, or send an e-mail to me at [remove spaces] jan @ jankrentz.com.

This design was created using left-over 3″ diamonds cut from undersea fish and ocean fabrics (from a Mexican Riviera cruise workshop). I arranged the loose diamonds in a fairly symmetric setting, and drafted the smaller diamonds to create a more complex outside row.¬† There is currently no published pattern for this variation, and it will be offered in the near future as a workshop.
