WAbash5-6830 is an unusual name for a quilt I know.  This classic design of Dandy and Four-Patch Variable Star blocks set on point would look lovely made in any color way or genre of fabric. It is all about value placement which besides block construction tips will be discussed in this workshop.

Strips of fabric in various sizes are sewn, cut and sewn again to make this fun block. And let me show you how the Easy Angle Ruler will become a tool you can’t live without to in making accurate half square triangles.
These blocks lend themselves well to showcasing a focus fabric or two in the centers of the stars so keep that in mind when pulling fabrics.

Confident Beginners to Advanced Quilters will enjoy this workshop.

NOTE: A bonus table runner design using the blocks of this quilt will be provided to each student at the time of the workshop. This table runner could be the home for your workshop blocks. As a teacher, I would rather have my students spend time with small amounts of fabric learning all about the block(s), tips and tricks of construction and maybe a new tool or two before you tackle a full size bed quilt. By working within this format I feel students learn more and stress less about cutting into large amounts of fabric in a workshop. I hope you agree. If you truly wish to start your full size quilt in the workshop that is fine, I just ask that you cut down some of the yardage into the strips indicated on the supply list to make your day easier
