Sedona Star
by Sarah Vedeler

Meet Sarah Vedeler

Join us on a new 12-month quilting journey as we bring you a fabulous quilt designed especially for TQS by Sarah Vedeler. Sedona Star is a spectacular medallion quilt that features a beautiful center star surrounded by a charming array of appliqué elements.

Each month we will provide a photo and detailed directions for a portion of the quilt, as well as full-size patterns. Sedona Star finishes at approximately 88” x 88” inches. One version features a total of sixteen different print fabrics, including colorful shades of blue, pink, purple, yellow, red and gold; however, Sarah is providing another alternative color option and instructions for each month as well. Fabric kits for both colorways are available in limited quantities through the TQS Shoppe.

Download the pattern for a new section of this quilt online each month. Also be sure to watch Sarah’s monthly instructional video to help you along the way. Sarah assures us that this quilt looks complicated but is achievable by everyone. Join the fun! It’s a wonderful way to start each month!

THE INSTRUCTIONAL VIDEOS WILL BE AVAILABLE ONLINE THROUGH THE END OF 2014.

THE INSTRUCTION FILES ARE NO LONGER AVAILABLE.

This month you will create the very center of the quilt– the circle and the 9 triangles surrounding it. The circle will be completed in its entirety. The 9 triangles will be set aside until month 2 when they will be added to the quilt top. There’s a lot of paper piecing this month and a little bit of appliqué. If you’ve never sewn a circle into a hole before, you will get to do that this month! However, if that sounds pretty intimidating, if you wait until Month 4, the instructional video for Month 4 will give you some tips to make it easy.

This month you will create 9 appliquéd blocks. These will then be stitched to the triangles made in Month 1 and added to the center circle. You will learn how to position your appliqué shapes exactly where you want them. This technique can also be used to easily position the appliqué shapes in all future “appliqué” months. For embroidery machine owners… this block will not be stitched in the hoop because it is too big for all but the Jumbo hoop on the Bernina 830.

This month you will make the first of 3 paper pieced star blocks. There are 3 copies of this block in the quilt. If you are using the Buttons and Blooms fabrics to make your quilt, you will see that the fabrics used for the star points have a stripe on them. The instructions for this month (and the video too!) show you how to align the stripe so that it is centered through the star points.

This month you will make the second set of paper pieced stars (3 copies again). Whereas the star in Month 3 was created as a ring, the star this month is created in sections that are then stitched together. Watch the video this month to see some tips for sewing the circular stars into the background hole.

This month you will create the last set of paper pieced stars (3 copies). You will also set the star blocks into the quilt top. The video for this month will give you some tips on how to create perfect Y seams – it’s really quite easy to do!

This month changes the pace with the first of 3 appliquéd blocks. You will be making 3 copies of this block. If you’ve never used the AccuQuilt GO! Cutter before, check out the video this month to see why I love to use it for cutting all of my appliqué shapes. It makes your cutting very fast and accurate.

You can use your favorite appliqué technique to create the 3 blocks for this month. If you have an embroidery machine, designs are included for you to do basic appliqué in the hoop. If you own an embroidery machine but have never used it to do appliqué this month, you may want to take a break and wait until next month to start your appliqué. The Month 7 video tells you everything you need to know to be successful! If you want to get stuck in straight away, you’ll still be able to do that this month as full instructions will be provided.

This month you will add the setting “triangles” to create a big circle, and then add a paper pieced circular border. The setting “triangles” are a great place to feature some really cool quilting or trapunto. Check out the video for some ideas. You’ll find a few templates for quilting included in the instructions.

This month there are 84 simple paper pieced diamond in a square blocks to be made, giving a nice relaxing finish to this project. Check out the instructions (and the video) to see how I create these blocks without having to cut out any triangles! When you’re all done with the piecing, it’s time to remove all of the stabilizer from the quilt top. Invite some friends over for a movie night (and maybe a glass of wine) and make a relaxing evening of it!
