Do you know the acronym for the colors of the rainbow? ROYGBIV! I added the accent of black to give it some punch . I love it and hope you do too! Strip piecing makes this pattern easier than it looks. I've listed this pattern as "advanced" because some of the techniques required are considered advanced. But read my story below to hear how a group of eleven "true" beginners inspired this pattern and each made the quilt top for themselves in a 6 week (18 hour) class. This quilt was inspired by a group of Native American women who were in a "True Beginner" quilting class that I taught. One of the ladies brought in a gorgeous Lone Star quilt and of course, everyone in the class wanted to learn how to make it because it is a popular quilt that is made and given away for special occasion gifts. One lady in the class said she had received five of them but had never made one! The amount of class time we were allotted didn't permit us to be able to make the big bed size quilt, so I designed this wall hanging. That way, they could learn the star piecing techniques and still have a finished quilt top at the end of class. This quilt pattern was the result. This is an advanced project but I have to say, every one of my true beginners finished her Lone Star quilt top. Includes Fabric Requirements and Cutting Instructions for FIVE bigger sizes all the way up to 90" x 90"! Thank you! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Use a ruler and rotary cutter, use a sewing machine and maintain a 1/4" seam allowance, either quilt on your sewing machine or have a professional quilt it for you, make and attach binding. This is an advanced project and requires prior quilting knowledge of cutting on an angle or bias, using bias edges, matching seams, and sewing "Y" or inset seams. I have tried to give you as much detail as possible in the pattern. for the above skill requirements. If you need more help, I encourage you to search Craftsy and/or the internet for tutorials, classes, or videos. It's all there at your fingertips. :o) SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 40" x 40" Includes fabric requirements and cutting instructions for FIVE additional sizes all the way up to 90" x 90"!

Piecin' Love is now Arizona Quilt Co. Before I talk about me, I want to thank each and every one of you who has visited my pattern store and/or purchased patterns from me. As my husband would say, my cup is overflowing and I am not always able to send out thank you notes to each and every one of you. I want you to know that you are appreciated more than you could possibly believe. I am blessed in so many ways and you are one of them. My name is Terri and I live in Arizona with Mark, my husband of 29 years and our spoiled rotten beagle, Tucker. I grew up in Alabama and I've been crafting and sewing since I was a little girl spending my summers in Mississippi at my grandparents' farm. I joined the Air Force the year after I graduated high school. I met Mark in 1985 while in the Air Force and stationed in Japan. We moved to his home turf of Wisconsin in 1990 and it was there that I learned to quilt. We have 2 children, ages 28 and 26, and we are the proud grandparents of Kilee Reese and Layla Faith, the two most adorable grand-girls on the planet. After moving to Wisconsin and taking several years to adjust my southern sensibilities, I learned how to quilt in 1999 and then opened a long-arm quilting business in 2004. I also worked for three years in a local quilt shop and it was there that I fell in love with teaching and pattern designing. That experience led to teaching quilting at our local technical college for three years and I really got into pattern designing by creating original patterns for my students. Sometimes my patterns are borne from a class request, sometimes from a spark of inspiration, always from a love of quilting and a desire to share it. Mark and I moved to Arizona in October 2014. Besides good weather, there is an amazing quilting culture here! In January 2016, Piecin' Love Quilting became Arizona Quilt Co. Thank you for visiting my pattern store. May God bless you beyond your expectations.
