Thunderstruck Quilt - Online Class

Cut, splice, adapt, and play until you have made your own exciting design! Play up a traditional Lemoyne star pattern with a modern improv approach. Follow my tips for Y-seam success! 

I am all about "ease of construction," pinning only where necessary, pinning for accuracy and habit, understanding how the fabric moves, understanding why you are sewing something in a particular order, so you can easily construct the block. I promise you. Make the block in the order I explain it, and you will find out why it's easier to make a Lemoyne star block this way.
