Episode 3111 Description and Preview

Marianne and Mary Fons are back to show us Mary’s sassy column quilt. Combining solid setting triangles with scrappy stars is pretty exciting! This strippy-style quilt is not your everyday type of layout. Its off-beat scrappiness makes this quilt a joy to make, and you’ll pick up a few new quiltmaking techniques along the way. Learn how to build scrappy, quirky star blocks with personality, how to use the secrets of the grainline for half and quarter square triangles, and how to prevent “row-slide” to keep your columns right where you want them.

Featured Quilt: Piecing a Blue Streak

Piecing a Blue Streak was designed by Mary Fons and is featured in the Love of Quilting July/August 2018 issue. It will also soon be available in the 3100 series eBook.
