This assignment started with acceptance to Deb Tucker Teacher Certification starting September 16th. There are 9 rulers. I had only used 2. We were asked to bring completed projects or at least blocks made with each ruler. I decided to make a project with the 6 rulers I had not used so I would feel comfortable with each one and then I would also have a class sample for each ruler. In the last 3 weeks I have completed 6 projects finishing up with the hunter star ruler.
I used Deb Tucker’s pattern called “Star Crossed Love” measuring 74″ by 92″ and required 25 fat quarters. I really loved this pattern. It was so well done, great detail and pictures for every step! Deb used a variety of brights in her quilt.
I had a fat quarter bundle called Sturbridge Village Calico. It had 25 fat quarters in it, I took it as a sign! I hoped it wasn’t too dark. It sure is scrappy, but I like it!
Deb gives wonderful direction on how to cut up the fat quarters to obtain the trapezoids, diamonds and triangles.
