I’ve just uploaded to YouTube a video on the Big Dipper quilt. This quilt is a great project to use those less than beautiful fabrics you might have in your stash. I just grouped together darks with lights or sometimes darks with mediums. Here is the link to the video https://youtu.be/Njw22jvPJ3w
This video has step by step instructions for making the Big Dipper blocks. I demo trimming the hourglass units using a piece of shelf liner with a hole in it to hold the ruler in place.
Gorgeous fabrics, ugly fabrics, old fabrics, and new fabrics – it doesn’t matter – you can use anything you like in this quilt! Two pairs of 5 inch squares will make a block that finishes 7 inches.
With this video I also continue a free pattern offer: When you purchase a book from my website you can receive a free pattern of your choice from any of my published patterns (retail value $10 or less) .
Write the name of the pattern in the “Inscription Area” next to your book selection.
One free pattern per book purchased. Yes if you purchase more than one book you may select a free pattern for each book purchased!
You must write in the pattern name at the time of purchase, if a pattern name is not written in a free pattern will not be shipped after the book is shipped. http://www.patspeth.com/store.html
