I thought I would share a couple of photos with you to help with the fabric selection. This fabric should match what you received if you purchased the kit from Sew Sisters.

Nine light value lights

Nine medium value fabrics

Eleven dark value fabrics
 Yes - I realize that turquoise (fifth from the bottom) doesn't look too dark. It is actually an accent in the center block and used as a tiny piping in the binding.

The darks, the medium, the lights - for comparison

Whatever you use - make sure that you LABEL everything.  I attached this label to each fabric. I took the name of the fabric as per the pattern and added the colour that we actually used.  Use the spreadsheet that I sent to you to make this conversion. It will save you a LOT of time.

Label for each fabric - I stapled it to the selvedge of each piece
 Alternatively you can make a fabric key - just a paper with each fabric glued beside the appropriate name. This is just an example - it is NOT from this quilt.

Fabric Key (NOT from Amish with a Twist - just an example)

And now for the homework. You will  make  TWELVE of the small star blocks in Installment A

FOUR will be pink 

FOUR will be blue

FOUR will be brown

The pressing for each star block

You can leave me a comment on this page if you need further help or feel free to send me an e-mail.

Hope this helps and I look forward to seeing your little stars at our next class.

Have a great day!!!!!!!!!!!!!
