Create your own walk of fame using the Wedge Star tool and some strip piecing.  Don’t be fooled by the complex look of the pattern, it is easier than you might think. We will take it nice and slow, one step at a time, and make wedge star blocks together.  Kelly will explain the use of the tool and demonstrate how to use it, and then assist you to learn to make the blocks.  Working with this tool usually leads to some fun and interesting ideas for more quilts! The quilt pattern includes 3 sizes for you to choose from; lap, twin, or queen - the only difference in the sizes is how many blocks you make. Bring your own fabric; see supply list for details.
