LONE STAR by Teresa Fusco:
The traditional favorite quilt pattern evolved around the early part of the 19th century. Many different fabrics were used in various displays of colors and designs in this quilt. It took an untold number of diamonds that were laboriously hand pieced. Often the Lone Star is referred to as Texas Star, Blazing Star, or the Star of Bethlehem. We will be using the Cut No Diamonds Method; color, rotary cutting and strip piecing, learn the tricks to stay accurate. I am convinced that this is the fastest, most accurate, and least complicated method of making this quilt. You will have the star almost finished when you leave the class.

Another name for this quilt is Sunshine and Shadow, this technique brings us back to the basics. Rotary cutting strips, using the 1/4'"seam allowance, the importance of accuracy. When the quilt is finished, the color and design give a traumatic impact which draws your eye to want more. The quilt is set against the traditional solid black fabric with solid bright fabrics – a quilt to be proud of.

I recommend this class for every level, even if the student never machine quilted or pieced.
