2018 Follow Along with Phyllis – Twinkle Twinkle Many Stars
It is time to reveal the new “Follow Along with Phyllis” for 2018 and here it is! I have recently been fascinated with two color quilts (especially red and white) so I decided it might be fun to make a medallion on that theme. This quilt is called “Twinkle Twinkle Many Stars”. The first Saturday in January we will start with the center Star of the East block and triple border. Then there will be four more months to complete each border of stars around it. I hope to have my quilt hanging in Wooden Spools by the end of next week (I’m just finishing the binding this weekend). Please stop in the shop to see it in person. I hope you will be inspired to join me in making your own Star quilt next year. I would also be happy to have you join me from other areas outside Denver and follow along through email and Wooden Spools Facebook page as some of you did last year. Here’s the link to sign up!
Details on how to participate:
Go to Wooden Spools in person or on line and sign up for the Follow Along. The cost is $10 to start. There are two ways you can participate.
Option #1. If you live in town and can make it to Wooden Spools every month you will come to the shop on the First Saturdays of the month (9:30 am) for 5 months. At the first gathering you will receive yardage lists for the entire project and instructions to make the center medallion Star of the East block with its triple border.
You’ll have a month to make this “block” as you wait for the 1st Saturday when the 2nd round of instructions will be given. Bring back your center block completed you will receive the next pattern for free. If you are unable to complete your block you can still come back and receive the next month’s instructions for just $5. Each month will be handled the same – bring your latest “round” completed and get the next month’s pattern instructions for free.
Option #2. To make this even more exciting – here is the good news. If you live out of town or can’t come in on the first Saturdays, you can sign up with your email and after you pay the first $10, you will receive the first pattern by email. It will arrive Saturday afternoon after our In-Store class has met. Then each following month all you do is email me a picture of your project showing that you have added each round every month and the next month’s instructions will be emailed to you. We must receive your email by 10 am on Saturday with the photo and your name, to qualify for you to receive the next pattern for free. If you want to purchase any pattern, it can be done after 10 am on the first Saturday for $5.
I am so excited to share this project with you and look forward to having lots of fun together as you create your own Twinkle, Twinkle Many Stars Two Color Quilt!
