Kimberly’s most popular class, this one sells out fast wherever she teaches it, and the diamond design possibilities are practically endless! Kimberly will teach you how to strip-piece and cut diamond building blocks from strips, using either her EZ Jelly Roll Ruler or her new Precision Precuts Ruler, with no “Y” or set-in seams. You will design your own unique Lone Starburst variation quilt! The first part of the class focuses on accurate and efficient cutting and piecing of the diamond units, and the latter part of the class will focus on design elements and the almost limitless possibilities for designing your own layout using your diamond units. The real magic comes from the fact that the quilt is assembled with straight-set blocks, not diamond wedges or blocks on point. This is an eye-opening class for anyone who wants to create a one-of-a-kind quilt with a Lonestar twist!
