Quilty: Blocks-A-Go-Go: Twinkling Star (Part 1)

Get ready for this, peeps: Today’s block has over 90 pieces in it. Don’t freak out! It’s actually just simple half-square triangles, but be ready to work small. In this Blocks-a-Go-Go episode of Quilty, spend some time with Mary working with tiny pieces, and learn how to build a pieced half of a larger half-square triangle. Warning: You will totally fall in love with this block. Here is the link to the PDF instructions for this episode http://www.heyquilty.com/content_downloads/BAGG_TStars.pdf

Quilty: Finally, a home for rookie quilters. Not everyone knows how to thread a sewing machine. It's okay! Quilty is here to help. Quilty is a weekly quilting show offered online that seeks to inform and inspire the next generation of quilters. Hosted by Mary Fons, a J.V. quilter and co-host of Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting on PBS, Quilty delivers great quilting instruction with humor, zest, and respect for the art of quilting. Many of today’s newer quilters visit quilt shops or randomly surf online with little to no knowledge of quilting basics. They feel bummed out and lost and often bail on the idea of making a quilt altogether. This is a tragedy of epic proportions! But it's no wonder: The home ec classes our mothers and grandmothers took were replaced by computer classes when we were in school. So it's Quilty's mission to teach rudimentary quilting skills in a friendly, welcoming way. There will be more advanced techniques, too, but the goal is always to inspire every viewer to make a quilt of her own after seeing just one episode. There's a new Quilty episode once a week. With style, class, and a sense of humor, Quilty aims to ignite new passion for the American quilt. Let's do this. For more Quilty and other related Quilting shows, visit QNNtv.com!
