Well here is the class I took at Northwest Quilters quilt show Saturday. It was called,"It takes Seven Sisters" by Gyleen X. Fitzgerald. If you ever have the opportunity to take a class from her, do it. She has a wealth of information to give and she takes the time to teach you the information.

I added pictures of the pattern and of the 5 blocks that I made. I wasn't sure if I had enough very dark fabric to make 7 stars, but I do. I just wanted to make a small wall hanging. Being me, I decided that I want to try this in a smaller size. This starts out with a 3 inch strip. I want to try a 1 1/2 inch strip since I have so many.

The last is of my first blocks before break and one of my many sewing machines. I even included my happy solar powered flower my good friend Elaine gave to me at a retreat. This way, she was able to go to the class through me. She had to take care of her mother. Another story.

Anyway, off to quilt with another group today Sunday, "Tina's Angels". We make charity quilts from a ton of donated fabric. Again another story.


  1. Seven Sisters is one of my favorite traditional patterns. I love the colors you've chosen for yours.
