The Fractured Star was designed as a beginner pattern to introduce quilters to paper piecing. The project is fast, uses only one foundation block, employs simple cutting techniques, and is an affordable and fun way to jump into your first paper piecing project. It is meant to make those new to the process find confidence, understanding, and success.
The foundation papers for the Fractured Star were designed by Bradley and Judy Niemeyer. Additional papers are available for purchase to increase the size of the pattern or make another quilt. The quilt finishes at 80″ x 80″.
There are 6 lessons and more than 18 videos in this online quilting class. Upon completion of your order, you will receive immediate access to all the lessons. Access to the workshop never expires. You will have continued, unlimited access to all workshop content including all future updates and revisions to the content.
For the best workshop experience:
- I suggest you progress through the lessons in numerical order.
- When you start a lesson, read through the entire lesson and watch the videos in order and then start from the beginning of the lesson and complete the steps in that lesson.
- The workshop is suitable for beginners to advanced quilters, so advanced quilters may find some of the videos a little tedious. Use the slider on the video to advance to the parts that interest you.
- Most videos have a Video Index displayed after the video. Use that index to quickly advance to the segment you want to watch.
Please ask questions if something isn’t clear. At the end of each lesson are three ways to contact me, ask questions or interact with other students. If you have a question about material in a particular lesson, it is best to comment at the end of that lesson.
