Laura Stone Roberts | Runtime (33 min)
Like the Treetop quilt blocks made in Lesson 5, the Mini Star blocks in the Peace Cottage quilt require templates for some of the patches. Host Laura Stone Roberts gives a refresher on how to make templates using template plastic and how to use those templates to cut the patches of the Mini Star quilt blocks. Accurate dimensions are crucial for this block to lay flat properly, and Laura demonstrates trimming up the units once they’re sewn. The Silo quilt block requires a flying goose unit for its roof, and Laura shows how to use the stitch-and-flip method to make that roof, then how to piece the rest of that block together.
