Sensational Stars – Kingston Style

Kingston Stars in Progress

Kingston Stars in Progress

This is another of my favorite classes to teach.  By the second morning of class, almost everyone showed up with a nearly completed star.  Then it was time to design the borders.  Above, by using two different colors as the background of the geese, it creates a saw-tooth edge around the center star.

Sylvie, who had driven the 8 hours from Val-D’or, Quebec, had brought a second finished quilt from the class she took with me in Phoenix.  She gets a lot of quilting done up there in the far north!

At the end of class, I was surprised by the gift of a fused glass plate and a card signed by everyone in the class!  What fun we had!  Ann is a professional glassmaker and has a website, “Sawdust and Glass” where you can see more of her work as well as that of her husband, Ron, who specializes in wood designs.

Thank you Limestone Quilters, for showing me how much fun we could have in class!  I love your designs and your hospitality!

    Gail, I can feel the buzz and the joyful atmosphere of your class! It’s evident your students got oodles of inspiration! Brings good memories of a class I took with you in Arizona. Good work and thank you!
