http://www.kinshipandkompany.com

Join us on a new 12-month journey through the stars as we bring you a fabulous quilt designed especially for TQS by Sue Garman. A spectacular medallion quilt that radiates with a center block set on point. Each month we will provide a photo and detailed directions for a portion of the quilt, as well as full size patterns. Stars for a New Day finishes at approximately 85 by 85 inches. It features a total of twenty different print fabrics and two different background fabrics in soft shades of blue, green, pink, tan, and gold. But Sue is providing several alternative color options in the instructions. Fabric Kits in limited quantities are available through the TQS Shoppe.

You made it through the feathered star. Congratulations! This month Sue’s homework includes setting the star on point as well as adding four patch and floater borders. Floater borders add a great bit of accent while allowing the four-patch units to fit perfectly. And last but not least, you will begin the first of many saw tooth star blocks that will come into play later this year. This is a long list of things to do, but remember to take it slowly and pace yourself.

You will not be adding these border stars to your quilt center until you have made them all. Take care when making all of these stars; accuracy now makes the work much easier later on!

This month you will add the outer flying geese border. Flying geese are nice additions to any quilt – and what is even nicer about them is that they are easy to make and easy to adjust to fit any length needed.
