Templates LBQ-SS02-T or Template material


2  3/4yds background NOTE: I used 2 different fabrics for checkered effect

7/8 yds light fabric for “glow”            NOTE: I used many fabrics for glow

26 Fat eighths for stars & centers      NOTE: I used one fabric for centers

1 yd large floral for setting triangles

1  2/3 yds batik for border

Additional supplies

Invisible thread

Decorative thread for machine applique centers

Rotary cutter-small (28mm) cutter is useful to cut with templates

Rotary cutting mat-in addition to a regular size mat, a small mat which can be rotated is helpful.  Rotating mat is also useful.

Rotary rulers: 6x24”, 16 ½” square ruler is very useful.

Fabric glue stick or Roxanne’s Glue Baste It

Cheap aluminum foil (Dollar Tree is good)

5x5” Square of card stock (I use file folder)

Fusible Web and Applique sheet if you will be fusing your center circles*

Sench Side threading needles or needles with eye large enough to thread w/2 strands

Sewing machine in good working order

Microtex sewing machine needles size 70,75, or 80.


Basic sewing kit including pins and good quality piecing thread.

*NOTE:  I will demonstrate two methods of appliqueing your center circles.

Pre-Class Preparation

Although you each have a 6-foot table to use, there is limited elevated cutting space.  I suggest you cut before class:

            Background 12” squares

            Template cutting for at least 3 blocks (points and “glow”)
