Wow! This Fons & Porter compilation is a treasure trove of quilts with star designs! The twenty-seven stunning star quilts are each created by a different quilt designer, including Judy Martin, Nancy Martin, Sally Collins, Marsha McCloskey, Marti Mitchell, and many others. This varied collection of star quilts offers choices for different skill levels and design tastes. Quilt sizes include miniatures to large bed quilts. Quilters will also appreciate the features of the Fons & Porter magazine used to further explain all things related to star designs. Fifteen Sew EasyT technique tutorials are included to teach how to cut and piece various geometric shapes, use specialty rulers, audition fabric placement, and more. Many of the quilts are shown in other fabrics for more inspiration. Quilting design suggestions are illustrated; some designs can even be downloaded from the Fons & Porter website. I would highly recommend this book as a valuable quilt library reference book. This collection of star quilt designs and techniques is extensive; any quilter will learn something new and find inspiration for further projects. I put the Mariner's in a Pickle quilt, which combines interlocking Mariner's Compass and Pickle Dish blocks, on my wish list of quilts to make. I am sure you'll find a star quilt that speaks to you as well!
