The Patch of the Lakeshore Quilters in Manitowoc, Wisconsin have a great workshop location with lots of room to spread out!
These blocks are for the Star and Crown quilt and I think it’s great that this quilter chose to reverse the value on the star blocks from what I used. In my block I had blue centers surrounded by cream background fabrics.
These are Prairie Gems blocks and the quilt is found in my Amazing Nickel Quilts book.
This is the center portion of the block in the South Dakota Star quilt. In my quilt I used lots of plaids and earthy colored fabrics so it is fun to see this block made with batiks and a black background.
So many terrific scrappy quilts are being worked on and I am looking forward to seeing the finished quilts from this workshop!
