Dancing Stars Quilt-Along :: Video Tutorial

Posted on January 7th, by Amy in My kids, quilt-along. 14 comments

Hi there! I disappeared last week, but I’ve been working on lots of good stuff! First up is a video tutorial for the Quilt-Along :

I hope that this is helpful for some of you!  If you don’t have a pattern yet, click over here for a free download.  This is the ruler that I used in the video, I’m really liking it!  And the papers are here – Enjoy.

Birthday girl!Yesterday we celebrated Emmalie’s 9th birthday – I am so blessed to be her mom!  I look forward to seeing her grow and blossom into a beautiful young lady, next year she hits double digits…where has the time gone?

Tomorrow Modern Basics II starts shipping, and I will be sharing more about the quilts in the book soon, for now I need to stock up on shipping supplies.

More soon – Amy

  1. Thanks for the tutorial! I got tickled when I first glanced at the title…thought it said “Dancing with the Stars” :)

  2. Thanks for taking the time to make such a great video tutorial of paper piecing and your awesome “Dancing Stars” pattern. Plus, I loved hearing your voice again . . .made it seem almost like I was right there with you. :)

  3. What size is a finished block?? I printed a pattern,
    but I think it’s too small as the pattern printed two
    pages on one sheet of paper.

  4. Amy, maybe you said it in the video and I missed it, but where did you get that cool ruler with the 1/4″ lip? Or what is the name of that gadget? I looked at JoAnns this weekend with no luck.

  5. Hi Amy!

    I love this pattern. I have all of my fabric cut minus the background fabric. I have looked at it a few times to make sure I am reading it correctly. It says “cut 1 strip 9 3/4″ wide,and then crosscut into; 2 squares, 9 3/4″ x 9 3/4″, then cut on the diagonal twice to yield 12 quarter triangles for setting.

    How do I get 12 quarter triangles out of 2 squares? I am lost.

    Please help me!

  6. Once I initially commented I clicked the -Notify me when new feedback are added- checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four emails with the identical comment. Is there any approach you can remove me from that service? Thanks!
