Woodcarver’s Star: This design was inspired by the Reclaimed West Fabric line Designed by Judy and Judel Niemeyer with Timeless Treasures and is designed for foundation paper piecing by Bradley and Judy Niemeyer. This instructions will teach you an new technique (developed in 2014) that expands on their traditional foundation paper piecing approach using strip-piecing to complete lone star units.

This quilt can be made in a variety of color schemes so don't let the western colors deter you. At 99" x 99" this king size quilt is easy to enlarge by increasing the outer border or adding an additional border to really frame the quilt and give you a larger drop on your bed.

To complete the stars, strips are sewn onto foundation paper to complete what they call a ‘Strip Set’. After the strip sets are completed, they are cut apart, rearranged, and re-sewn into a diamond star point. The technique evolved from seeing some common assembly approaches between the Summer Solstice and Bali Fever Backgrounds. Judy began experimenting with ways to speed up the creation of a lone star block with a strip to eliminate cutting, while also minimizing fabric waste. The Woodcarver’s Star is a Version of the block used in Prismatic Star. It can be completed with 2-1/2” strips, and has been designed without Y-Seams.

It incorporates the windmill block developed with the Reclaimed West fabric collection and it is Judy’s first Broken Star Quilt Design. Requiring just under 21 Yards of fabric, this Queen-Size quilt may be one of the most efficient Queen designs Quiltworx has ever published.
