Gyleen X. Fitzgerald It Takes Seven Sisters

Nothing is more stunning than twenty brilliant stars made from diamonds. "Seven Sisters" block is what makes this quilt sparkle. The power in the sparkle is created by using 20 great fabrics from a narrow color palette. Assembly is not as hard as you think. In this workshop you will learn the Butterfly Seam for perfect set-in piecing. Come ready to relax and chat; you are not expected to finish this in class since there is no speed sewing. This beauty takes time to complete.

Special Tool: Gyleen's Polygon1 Tool ($14)

Pattern: Seven Sisters ($10) 

Gyleen will have the pattern and tool available for purchase at the workshop. (If you would like to purchase them and have them shipped to you before the workshop, click on links above to purchase tool and pattern on Gyleen's website. Please note that the prices on her website are higher because shipping costs are included.)
