Our quilts reflect the experiences of our lives. The autumn season turns our attention quilting as the nights become cool and the leaves begin to take on the colors of fall. Autumn Starshine is a great example of capturing that fall palette. Patrick and Lynette Jensen will present techniques for making star blocks, piecing perfect borders and a beautiful binding.

This bar quilt features 4-patches set on point in a classic blue and yellow combination with a pop of orange. Judy Hansen and Mary Fons demonstrate how slightly over-sizing your blocks can create more accurate trimmed blocks when piecing. They also share a tip for using a walking foot while piecing.

Marsha McCloskey's design combines two quilt blocks, the Ohio Star and the lesser known Ohio Circle. The quilt plays with patchwork in a way that works for traditional hues or fun prints or just about anything else! Join host Sara Gallegos and special guest Angela Huffman for a patchwork party!
