Martha Washington’s Star Quilt – Fons & Porter

About this Quilt

Liz Porter and some of her friends began a fabric exchange by pulling dark and light prints for pinwheel blocks. When Liz assembled the blocks, she stitched one at the center of each stunning Martha Washington’s Star blocks and used the remaining blocks for the pieced border. Watch this Quick Hourglass Units video to help these come together with ease!
