Winter 2018 Quilting Trends

I can't believe that winter is right around the corner though the weather here is telling me it is.  Winter is an exciting time in the quilt world.  Market just wrapped up in Houston so there are a host of new tools and fabric getting ready for us to play with and wish for.  Winter also lends itself to more time to quilt because no one is hanging outside when the weather is cold and the day seems so short.  Are you ready to see what I think will be the top quilting trends for 2018?

Large No Y-Seam Eight-Point Star Quilt Block Video Tutorial

My mom's "signature quilt pattern" was an eight-point star.  Usually, it was a Lone Star or Broken Lone star quilt, which is one huge block for the entire quilt.  The problem is I absolutely hate y-seams.  So I have been on a mission to make an eight-point star quilt block with no y-seams.  I also wanted it to be in my "signature quilt" style which is larger than normal blocks.  This no y-seam eight-point star is an eighteen-inch block!

Fiber Tuesday 135

Welcome back to Fiber Tuesday!  How was everyone's week?  I am running behind tonight.  My internet has been funky since Friday and I just got it back.  It's not completely right but it's on and that means I don't have to drive somewhere to get enough cell service to post this thankfully.
