Bring your strips for a fun marathon weekend! This bargello lonestar goes together quickly in strip sets. It will work with any 2-1/2” strips you have, whether you want to use stash or something fresh; it’s a great class to try!
Karen Gibbs, Sales Manager for Island Batik, is a nationally known Quilter, Instructor, Author, Fabric and Pattern Designer! She’s held Madison’s Star Marathons around the country and we are super-excited to be hosting one at Wooden Spools!
Karen’s daughter, Madison (for whom the quilt is named) will be there too – Madison helps out in class by pressing for students! How awesome is that???
You don’t need to be an experienced quilter – just know how to sew! Spend a super fun weekend sewing and have a stunning Madison’s Star Quilt to show for it! Wow…
We’ll have a selection of Island Batiks available for you as a kit for class if you want: Here’s a snap-shot of the colors:
