Calling all Star Lovers to Quiltfest New Jersey

NancyMNancy Murtie, who believes quilting should be effortless and fun will present For Lovers or Stars at the Quilt & Sewing Fest of New Jersey on Thursday, March 3 from 1:00 to 4:00 pm.


In Nancy’s workshop you will make a wall hanging featuring the starMurtieQFNJ16_006 Marianne Fons designed for Eleanor Burns’ new book All Star Quilts. You will learn the easy, time saving techniques used by Marianne and Eleanor. Nancy’s version of this quilt features striped border fabric. Nancy has also developed an easy mitered corner technique that will be taught in class. A step-by-step demonstration of how to create Eleanor’s new feather star will be given. This feather star has no set in seams and is as easy as the Bear’s Paw block. This workshop is great for beginner and intermediate level quilters.
