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.

   Fussy Cutter 45 degree diamond ruler set

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.

Whoo-hoo! Just look at the progress of the Apple Valley quilters during a 6-hour workshop! They did do some advance cutting and sewing in preparation for class. Diamonds were cut, marked and partially constructed in class. The small scale mock up designs show the finished design Рjust beautiful, ladies!
