A contemporary approach to classic star blocks

Create beautiful, fresh-looking quilts with traditional star-based blocks. In Classic Quilts with Contemporary Style, you'll learn everything you need to create each breathtaking quilt exactly, or to try a unique twist on the traditional patterns.

The instructions for two quilts using the classic Five-Point Compass show you how to make a traditional star block, and how combine it into the larger quilt. After that? Learn how to piece 14 different traditional star patterns, and to also create more than 45 different quilt projects!

These hand-pieced and hand-quilted projects are broken down into detailed visual instruction (both illustration and photography) and pattern inserts feature paper patterns for the piecing, as well as quilting designs, so you have everything you need to get started!

Would you like to create a larger quilt? Or maybe share the piecing experience with fellow quilters in a round robin? Maybe you'd like to create a mini-quilt, or even a tote bag from your quilted creations? Whatever project you choose, with Classic Quilts with Contemporary Style,you'll definitely create a contemporary classic.
