Yesterdays Class

Yesterday I attended a class given by Pam at Sager creek quilt shop in Siloam Springs. It was to be a fun class, nothing too complicated. 

We were going to make 6 pointed stars using Sidekick ruler by Jaybird's 

and use the pattern from the same company called Sprinkles. 

I had jellyroll strips to make my stars and then I cut 2 1/2" strips of white Kona for the background.
Well since only two of us showed up, Pam had some free time in between instructions. I asked if she thought it was possible I could make Seven Sisters using this Sidekick.

She did not know of any written instructions already, so during her free time while we were busy she was drafting up how we could use the same cuts we just made into a totally different pattern, 

Seven Sisters.

This pattern using the Sidekick ruler is meant to be sewn on the machine. There are no Y seams like when made with all diamond shapes. I'm using triangle in the background fabric.

This is what I have so far. One set of stars. 

For a baby quilt I think I'll need 3 more sets of seven stars

This is Laura's start of her quilt she is doing the pattern.

Looking good.

Now I can say I really do not need another project but sometimes I can't stop myself. I just have to see it made up.


  1. Love those colors! I've been to that shop many times. My daughter lives just three blocks from there.

  2. It really does look amazing, I to love the colours. Beautiful fabric choices.

  3. Wow, looks like you got a good start on what promises to be a gorgeous quilt.


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
