Starlight Express Quilt

Starlight Express Quilt


In this series of workshops we will make a beautiful lap quilt measuring approximately 70” square.
With this design there are no ‘Y’ seams but we will be piecing diamonds on their bias edge, so it is not suitable
for beginners. This is a great ‘jelly roll’ project or can be made using up some of your stash from home, where your
fabrics can be categorised into 5 different groupings

Level of Experience

Suitable for intermediate to advanced.
