The Night Sky Row of Jennie`s Stripy Stripey Story Quilt
Block of the Month • Educational, G, 01-Apr-2016
And we are off on our quilt adventure – row 1: sun/moon and stars on the night sky. Jennie shows you how to create these with the help of useful rotary cutting templates (which keep you safe and as well as accurate).
You get information on how to measure your strips of fabric. She talks about seams and stitch length, marking your fabric and heed the warning! Because always better to use marking implements that have been designed for patchwork.
The 6 section star is made with a diamond 60 degree diamond template (you can find template in our website) and is created using a ‘Y’ seam. You can see more on how to do this with Jennie in the workshop Inset or Y Seam.
The sun/moon is made with the dresden plate template, which you also can find in our website, and has a turned top pointed edge which makes for quick sewing as it can be chainpieced, and also for easy applique later.

And finally if you are interested in the circular template, which can also be used carefully with the smaller rotary cutter – go to our website.
