Fabric Requirements

Binding: 3/4 yard Backing: 4 yards

*Fat Eighth 9" x 21"



Below are all the bundles we recommend:

FABRICS {We have two fabric options- choose one or do a mixture of both if your stash isn't big enough}

and Scrappy Darks Fat Eighth Bundle for an amazing array of colors and prints.

• Option 2: Primrose Fat Quarter Bundle and fabrics from your own collected stash.


Edyta's Tip: I absolutely LOVE an overflowing scrap basket and finding projects to use them on!

If you have a basket full, don't be afraid to dive in! Along with the Primrose FQ or F8 bundle, you'll still need plenty of fabrics to choose from - I'll certainly be tapping into my own stash! Having plenty of extra of colors and prints to pull is SEW helpful when creating beautiful,

one-of-a-kind designs. Don't limit yourself! We'll have these stars shining just for YOU!


Binding: 3/4 yard of fabric in a complimentary color -or- if keep using up those scraps for a scrappy binding. (We recommend Primrose fabrics. Choose your favorite for your binding!) Backing: 4 yards light fabric - So many beautiful fabrics on our website to choose from. Click here.

PATTERN {Choose one option}

Star Upon Stars Pattern or Patches of Stars Book (and really reach for those stars!)


TEMPLATE SET


NOTIONS {These are my recommendations}

Edyta’s Tip: I like to press all my fabric ahead of cutting. I use Best Press for a nice, crisp finish!

Edyta’s Tip: Always have a stash of fresh blades for your rotary and remember to change yours often

for the cleanest cuts.

I am SEW looking forward to quilting with you!

Please lets be kind, this is a free event, and please remember I am doing

my best to provide you with all the information to show you how I made my quilt.

This quilt is intermediate - advanced level quilters or anyone who feels up for a challenge!


Star Upon Stars is inspired by an antique quilt from 1846 that I saw in the Grand Rapids Public Museum in Michigan. I knew I had to get permission to re-create it as a pattern and I am so thankful to have had this chance. This quilt sparkles bright in my heart and I am SEW excited to share it with you.

This was a special day with my friends, back in Michigan.

See you March 22nd!


Happy Quilting,

Edyta

I have had the book for several years but been afraid to attempt all the angles. Excited to begin, I used my stash and have cut most of my strips per instructions. I was disappointed when the time was pushed forward so I watched your tutorial on 8 point stars and began those tiny 4x4 squares. You are such an inspiration!!

For those who asked will the content be available if we miss a Weds presentation, Edyta’s wonderful staff person Cindy explained to me yes, via the blogpost, when I asked her that question in the process of resolving another query. Sounds like once posted the content will be there at least for the three weeks. Can’t wait for this! I’ve admired this quilt for so long.

Thank you for doing this quilt along! I have had your book for a few years but I thought I would never be able to make this quilt. But I think with your videos and blog I might be able to do it! I am very excited!
