Sensational Stars and Circular Borders

New as yet unnamed Star!

It has been a very busy fall with many quilting trips. The final trip was to Paducah, KY, where I was filming online classes for West Kentucky Community and Technical College. This time, I was filming two sessions, one "Sensational Stars", and the other "Designing Circular Borders". Last spring, I filmed my first session, "The Goose is Loose". You can access the classes by visiting

Once you click on the site below, click on Course Catalog and then Quilting. If you find a course you are interested in, click the Enroll button. You can enroll, pay, and complete the class all on line. Because WKTC is an accredited college, you will receive college credit for these classes.

For these two classes I decided to make double use of one quilt. The center star was shown in the first session and the borders in session number 2. I also designed 3 additional circular borders that also fit onto the center star. The quilt, shown above, is nameless as of today, but I hope inspiration strikes me soon, or you have a great idea for a name. I used two different hand-dyed fabric gradation pack from Starr Designs which I think really make this quilt sparkle. I used the 10 fat-quarter packs of Maui Magic and Cabana Cools.

If you have a suggestion for a name for the new design, please let me know.
